To apply, you must be a resident of Los Angeles County, California. You must write a personal statement about your military experience, your proudest moments, and any significant obstacles you've faced.
Please also include the following via a link:
Special consideration shall be given to students with a service-connected disability, victims of military sexual trauma, combat veterans, and veterans who are experiencing housing insecurity.
Describe your military experience (e.g. branch of service, MOS, awards, deployments, special assignments) and your proudest moment.
