Programs are grant funded and prioritized for the Los Angeles Unified School District. All schools are encouraged to apply regardless of school district, and residencies outside of the Los Angeles Unified School District will be offered based on availability. 

These programs are free to Los Angeles Unified schools thanks to the generosity of the Max H. Gluck Foundation.
