TheDream.US Scholarship For Undocumented Immigrants

TheDream.US Scholarship For Undocumented Immigrants
TheDream.US Scholarship program offers scholarship awards to first-time college students who have a financial need and are undocumented immigrants. It is specifically for students whose undocumented immigration status meets the qualifications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

DACA was approved by President Obama in 2012 which defers any deportation action for undocumented young people who came to the U.S. as children and have pursued education or military service in the U.S. Students may be either already DACA approved or may apply for DACA approval if they believe they are eligible.

Eligible students must be planning to attend participating colleges in New York City, Miami, Washington D.C., El Paso, Rio Grande Valley, and online and pursuing an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. They must have a grade point average of 2.5 or above. The scholarship may be used for tuition, books, and other college fees and expenses.

The scholarship is offered by TheDream.US, a Washington D.C.-based non-profit organization that provides college scholarships to highly motivated undocumented immigrants who would otherwise not be able to afford a college education. The goal of the organization is to enable 2,000 eligible students over the next ten years to realize their dream of a college education and joining the U.S. workforce.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $25,000.
