LSA is proud to offer financial assistance to help students who cannot afford to pay for our programs. This program is supported by our network of generous sponsors and donors. At this time, funding is very limited so financial assistance will be given in the form of partial or full program certificates. Winners will be asked to write a brief letter of thanks to one of our program sponsors.
The deadline to apply is March 30th at midnight (PST). Financial assistance winners will be notified by April 16th. If you have already paid for the program in full, and you receive financial aid, we will issue a refund. Good luck!
