LASIF Key Elements


While the core LASIF model has remained consistent over its ten-year history, the initiative has undergone important evolutions in response to student needs. In 2017, LASIF added the Young Men of Color Initiative to better integrate specific strategies that support male students. In 2019, the Relief from Urgent Student Hardship (RUSH) Fund was launched to help students struggling to meet basic living expenses persist towards their postsecondary aspirations.

Our Collective Impact

LASIF scholars to date, of whom over 90% are Pell Grant or CA Dream Act recipients and more than 91% identify with race/ethnicity groups historically underrepresented in higher education, are completing postsecondary degrees far faster and at higher rates than local and national averages.
