Permanent residency means this is where you live when you are not attending school.  For example, you went to high school in Los Angeles County, your parents live in Los Angeles County, and when you go home for the holidays or over the summer, “home” is Los Angeles County.  A Los Angeles County address is listed on your school transcripts and a Los Angeles County address is what appears on your driver license.  If you are unsure of whether your home is within Los Angeles County, please visit: http://lavote.net/district/

Candidates are sought from all areas of undergraduate study and are not required to have demonstrated a previous commitment to the arts. All college students of any ethnic background who meet the residence and attendance criteria are eligible to apply to participate in the Los Angeles County Arts Internship Program.
