Leonardo DiCaprio and the UCLA Lab School announced the formation of the Leonardo DiCaprio Scholarship Fund and a climate education program for students in pre-K through sixth grade that will launch ahead of the 2023–24 school year.
“I was fortunate enough to attend the Lab School due to the generous contributions of UCLA donors, and my experience profoundly transformed my worldview,” DiCaprio said. “I am proud to have the chance to pass on my experience to those who might otherwise miss out on this opportunity and to help create a program that will help guide the next generation of climate warriors.”
DiCaprio has long been involved with projects related to climate change, access to clean water, biodiversity protection, conservation and disaster relief and has worked in support of organizations and initiatives dedicated to securing a sustainable future.
