Most importantly, we want to provide a sense of community to our diverse group of readers..
We believe nothing should stand in your way of a college education—not the cost, your immigrant status, or the lack of financial aid. Our scholarships can help you pay for your college education. You do not need DACA or TPS to apply! You can apply if you came to this country before November 1, 2016.
Applications open on November 1st of each year.
