Learning Aligned Employment Program (LAEP)

The Learning Aligned Employment Program (LAEP) is funded by the California Student Aid Commission and provides eligible underrepresented college and university students with the opportunity to earn money to help defray their educational costs, while gaining education-aligned, career-related experience. LAEP allows a participating student to conduct research that relates to the student's area of study, career objectives, or the exploration of career objectives.  LAEP is a form of financial aid and is included in a student's financial aid package. Students who participate in LAEP internships receive the funds in a paycheck as they earn them, based on hours worked.
