Any student with DACA (and no DACA) can and should apply for this if they're looking for college scholarships.  This is good for highly motivated DREAMers with significant, unmet financial need. They consider student's GPA and test scores, and also place great emphasis on their demonstrated ability to overcome the barriers and challenges that DREAMers face each and every day.


Application Closes on March 1, 2018!

**NOTE: If you do not have DACA or TPS, you can still apply for the scholarship if you meet the immigration eligibility criteria (which mirror the DACA eligibility criteria). You will need to certify this as a part of the application.
