TheDream.US, the nation’s largest college access and success program for immigrant youth, today offered a reminder that its current scholarship application round is open, with expanded eligibility criteria to support the higher education dreams of more Dreamers with and without DACA or TPS. Applications are open to immigrant students who came to the U.S. before the age of 16 and before Nov. 1, 2018. All undocumented students who meet the eligibility criteria are welcome to apply.
The application deadline for the Opportunity Scholarship, for students who live in Indiana and other locked-out states where they cannot access or face limited in-state tuition eligibility, is January 31, 2024. The Opportunity Scholarship provides up to $80,000 to cover tuition, fees, and on-campus housing and meals for a bachelor’s degree at one of five out-of-state colleges – Christian Brothers University in Tennessee; Delaware State University; Dominican University in Illinois; Eastern Connecticut State University; or Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC. Full information on eligibility for the Opportunity Scholarship and how to apply is available HERE.
Abraham Flores is a TheDream.US Scholar who lives in Indiana but attends Eastern Connecticut State University as an Opportunity Scholar. Abraham says of the Opportunity Scholarship: “It can certainly change your life in a positive manner. These scholarships do wonders and help you a lot, mentally and financially. They take a big weight off your shoulders. Eligible Dreamers should be sure to apply as soon as possible!”
Gaby Pacheco, president and CEO of TheDream.US said: “We encourage all eligible immigrant youth in locked-out states to apply for the Opportunity Scholarship before the application deadline at the end of January. During a time of uncertainty for many Dreamers, we will remain steadfast in our support of undocumented youth and their college and career success.”
TheDream.US is the nation’s largest college and career success program for undocumented immigrant students, having provided more than 10,000 college scholarships to Dreamers attending over 80 partner colleges in 21 states and Washington, DC. We believe everyone, regardless of where they were born, should have equitable access to a college education, a meaningful career, and opportunities to contribute to the communities they call home.
