Guardian Scholars Program
Founded in 1983, Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC) Foundation provides grants and scholarships to assist students in need at LATTC, which serves 21,000 students, 80% of whom qualify for reduced tuition due to low family income. A significant number of students enrolled at LATTC are former foster youth, military veterans, and disabled students, and the local student population has some of the highest educational needs in the United States. The LATTC Foundationâ€™s three main program activities are disbursing student scholarships, providing trade-specific toolkits to students, and funding technical skills competitions for students.
