Ashoka Fellow Dr. Mustapha Jazar founded the Lebanese Association for Scientific Research (LASeR) in 2008.
LASeR is a non-profit and non-political association that provides education and capacity-building programs to prepare youth for the job market in Lebanon.
To make these programs accessible, LASeR offers a variety of scholarships and educational loans.
In 2018, LASeR partnered with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) to provide refugees and vulnerable learners living in Lebanon an opportunity to earn US-accredited degrees.
LASeR currently offers associate and bachelor degrees in business, communication, and health care management.
