Over the last two years, the Sri Lanka America Association of Las Vegas has awarded scholarships to member students seeking assistance in paying for their college education. This is just one of the many ways that SLAALV supports their local community and gives back by lifting others up. A portion of the funds raised during our events and from our generous sponsors during the year go towards this effort to help young people to better themselves and their Southern Nevada home. Today we are asking each and every one of you to encourage your family and friends who have recent graduates that are Nevada residents to apply for the scholarship. This year, given the COVID-19 situation, we will be awarding two scholarships, each of $1000, to students who may need a little extra help to get their college education.
