E4FC'S New American Scholars Program is open to low-income undocumented college and graduate students who live or attend school in the San Francisco Bay Area. Applicants must be foreign-born and demonstrate financial need.

Applicants cannot have a visa, permanent residency (green card) or citizenship in the U.S. They must intend to enroll in an accredited college or graduate program. They must also have a GPA of 3.3 for high school students and 3.0 for current college or graduate students. Candidates should also have demonstrated involvement in extracurricular activities or community work.

The Bay area includes the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, and Yolo.
 The scholarship covers tuition and other college-related expenses.

The scholarship is provided by Educators For Fair Consideration (E4FC), a non-profit organization started in 2006 by Carrie Evans and Katharine Gin, two educators with over 25 years of combined experience working with low-income, minority youth. The organization's mission is to empower undocumented young people to achieve their academic and career goals.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $7,500.
