  • Housing and meals for the duration of the program
  • 5 units of university credit
  • Other activities during the program

Fee Reductions

Funds are available to assist those students who might otherwise be unable to attend due to financial constraints. To request consideration for a fee reduction the student should submit a coversheet or letter describing parent/guardian’s financial obligations and need for support to the director, Megan Bettis by the application deadline.

The amount of the fee reduction award will be based on demonstrated need, the number of applicants who qualify and the availability of funds. Fee reductions are allocated at the time of program acceptance notification, therefore, requests for considerations of a fee reduction will not be accepted following admission to the program.

Fee reduction requests are reviewed after students are accepted into the program, and are not part of the program application review.

Application Fee Waiver

Applicants can request an application fee waiver by emailing the Program Director at ysp@ucdavis.edu and requesting a waiver. An application fee waiver will be granted to any student who requests one prior to the application deadline.
