Luso-American Education Foundation

The Luso-American Education Foundation was organized by a group of citizens of Portuguese

origin in 1963. The Foundation's goals are to foster, sponsor and perpetuate the Portuguese language

and culture in the United States. The Foundation provides scholarships and educational grants in various categories and sponsors student exchange programs, annual education conferences, summer youth educational camps and Portuguese Day activities.
