    Work Exchange

    We are grateful for the generosity of your time as a volunteer. There are limited spaces available for volunteers in every class, daylong and workshop. We also have special research and programming projects which one can do in exchange for attending a class or event. View the Work Exchange policy. For more questions, please call 310.206.7503 or email marcinfo@ucla.edu.


    Scholarship

    We are happy to offer some full and partial scholarships to help offset the cost of classes and events. To receive a scholarship please send us an "Ask Letter". An "Ask letter" is a statement of need. Please let us know how/why this class or event will be beneficial to you. Tell us of your financial need. Do not disclose financial data such as social security number. These are granted in very limited numbers and are on a first-come first serve basis. You should pre-register for your class/event of interest. This insures your space in the class/event but does not necessarily guarantee your scholarship. The decision on scholarships will be made prior to the start date. You will receive a call or email confirming your scholarship. If you receive a partial scholarship, you may pay by check or credit card.

    Please submit your "Ask Letter" to marcinfo@ucla.edu. For further questions, please call (310) 206-7503.

    For more information email marcinfo@ucla.edu or call (310) 206-7503
