SECTION 1.

 Section 8664 of the Education Code is amended to read:

8664.
 The Regents of the University of California are requested to perform all of the following duties:
(a) Provide for the operation and governance of the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science, including the appointment of an advisory committee to assist in planning and administering the summer school.
(b) Develop and implement a statewide application procedure in cooperation with appropriate state and local agencies, including, but not limited to, school districts, the California State University, and the California Community Colleges. The cost of the application process shall be at least partially offset by charging each applicant a fee not to exceed thirty dollars ($30). Applicants who are unable to pay the fee shall petition the University of California for a waiver, which shall be granted or denied pursuant to the rules and regulations adopted pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 8669.
(c) Develop the curriculum of the summer school.
(d) Establish a nonprofit foundation to develop and receive private support for the summer school or establish a separate account for donations.

SEC. 2.

 Section 8669 of the Education Code is amended to read:

8669.
 (a) It is the intent of the Legislature that at least 50 percent, but not more than 75 percent, of the actual costs of the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science for each fiscal year would be financed by state funds beginning in the 1999–2000 fiscal year. The balance of the operating costs would be financed with fees and private support.
(b) Except as provided in subdivision (c), the Regents of the University of California are requested to set a tuition fee within a range that corresponds to actual program costs, up to but not exceeding two thousand eight hundred ten dollars ($2,810) per session in the year 2012, and may increase this fee by an amount up to 5 percent each year thereafter. It is the intent of the Legislature that the University of California award full or partial scholarships on the basis of need and that pupils who are unable to pay all or part of the fee may petition the University of California for a fee reduction or waiver to ensure that a qualified applicant is not denied admission solely because of his or her inability to pay part or all of the fee. Any public announcement regarding the summer school program should include notification that need-based scholarships are available and information regarding the procedure for applying for a scholarship award.
(c) For pupils who are not California residents, it is the intent of the Legislature that the Regents of the University of California set a tuition fee that is not less than the total actual costs to the summer school of services per pupil.
(d) The foundation authorized to be established pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 8664 may raise funds from the private sector that may be used by the summer school for general program operating costs, scholarships, program augmentation, public relations, recruitment activity, or special projects. Private support may include, but not necessarily be limited to, direct grants to the summer school from private corporations or foundations, individual contributions, in-kind contributions, or fundraising benefits conducted by any entity.
(e) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2023, 2018,  and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2023, 2018,  deletes or extends that date.
