LAEF Enrichment Class Scholarships

LAEF is absolutely committed to providing enrichment opportunities for EVERY Los Al kid, whether or not their family can afford the class fees.  If a family is going through a tough time financially, they are invited to apply for a scholarship, which waives a percentage of class fees.  If a family qualifies for the Free/Reduced Lunch Program, they automatically receive support.  Each scholarship request is handled personally and sensitively by LAEF staff.  Each year, a child can receive support for at least three classes, which includes one class during LAEF’s fall, spring and summer sessions!

Each year, approximately $30,000 in enrichment class scholarships are granted to Los Al families!

Thank you to these amazing funders of LAEF enrichment class scholarships –
