(Montreal) Leonardo DiCaprio will fund scholarships and a climate education program at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) elementary school where he himself was once a scholarship student.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Scholarship Fund and Climate Justice Education Program are scheduled to begin in the next academic year at UCLA Lab School.

The school aims to provide innovative teaching techniques to its students – whose ages range from four to twelve – that outside teachers can come and study.

DiCaprio’s scholarship fund will provide financial aid to his students in need, which he himself obtained as a child in the 1980s.
