Scholarship Opportunity for Undocumented Students
I’m writing to tell you about a noteworthy scholarship opportunity for undocumented students.
The application for the National Scholarship, offered by TheDream.Us, opens Nov. 1. TheDream.US is a multimillion dollar national college scholarship fund created to help immigrant youth get a college education. (www.thedream.us/)
TheDream.US provides motivated undocumented students with scholarships of up to $29,000 to help cover tuition and fees not already covered by the aid they may already be eligible for at their respective institutions.
The National Scholarship is available to high school seniors, high school graduates and community college graduates who demonstrate a significant unmet financial need. (www.thedream.us/scholarships/national-scholarship/)
Applicants must have applied for admission and been accepted to a TheDream.US Partner College. UC Merced and UC Santa Cruz are proud to TheDream.US Partner Colleges. Students also must be AB 540 eligible for in-state tuition. (www.thedream.us/about-us/partner-colleges/)
Students who are currently enrolled in a community college are eligible. Please note that students who are currently enrolled in a four-year college or university are NOT eligible.
The National Scholarship application will be available here on Nov. 1. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2018.
