Mission & Vision


We connect individuals and institutions with opportunities to enhance the quality and impact of higher education in the Americas.


To foster knowledge-based, inclusive societies throughout the Americas.

Our History

Laspau brings together a valuable network of individuals, institutions, leaders and organizations devoted to building knowledge-based societies across the Americas. Fifty years ago, we began managing scholarship programs and guiding many thousands of candidates through higher education institutions abroad. Today, we do much more.

For over a decade, we’ve helped hundreds of universities identify ideal candidates, innovate teaching methods and improve their effectiveness. This continues to influence generations of faculty and students with global best practices in teaching and learning, impacting future experts and leaders.

Currently, we look to our growing network within the private sector, international organizations, governments, foundations and individuals to help contribute to our next wave of opportunities that shape the future of the Western Hemisphere.
