Families who are registered with the Consulate in Los Angeles and whose children are French citizens, may apply for the bourse if their child is three years of age or older before December 31 of the year for which they are applying. Eligible families are asked to apply for the bourse before applying for financial aid through FAST. The French government establishes its own criteria for awarding the aid and it is only applicable to the French Section Program (FSP).
