Financial Aid Resources
Through generous grants from the Koret Foundation and IME Becas Program through the Mexican Consulate, as well as private donations from supporters and alumni, the LEAD Scholars Program offers fellowships to support LEAD Scholars interested in engaging in extracurricular learning opportunities that will support their vocational development including unpaid internships, community-based learning, undergraduate research, study abroad, and summer school. A call for applications will go out to LEAD Scholars in late winter quarter, applications are due in early spring quarter and are awarded in the middle of spring quarter. Off cycle applications will also be considered based on the availability of funding. This funding is dependent on approval from financial aid.
