In addition to creating a space for students to gather, LASSO offers the Latino Leadership Pipeline Scholarship (LLP). The scholarship is designed to increase the number of students of Hispanic/Latinx heritage who enroll and complete their undergraduate degrees and provide mentors, internships, and community service experiences to these students so they can become the leaders of the future. LASSO supports LLP scholars through their time at Georgia State with additional programming and support to ensure they can meet and exceed requirements for their scholarships.
LASSO’s impact goes beyond the Georgia State campuses. LASSO brings programming and support to Latinx high school students in the metro Atlanta area through the Latinx Leadership Initiative, a mentorship program that aims to increase the number of Latinx students enrolling and thriving in college. This program gives Latinx undergraduate students the opportunity to learn how to leverage the power of mentorship to be a positive force in the lives of Latinx high school students.
The LASSO team is available on campus and online to engage with students, parents, and community members. We are available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. On-campus appointments are available on the Atlanta campus. Hablamos Español.
