Undocumented Student Scholarship

The School of Education is pleased to offer financial support to incoming and current undocumented and DACAmented students enrolled in any School of Education program (Hilltop or additional locations). In recognition of the social change efforts that many of our undocumented students are engaged in, the scholarship responds to the social, cultural and political stressors undocumented and DACAmented students face. Awards will be given in the amount of up to $5,000 dollars.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Undocumented or DACAmented student
  • Incoming or current student in any School of Education program (Hilltop Campus or additional locations)
Candidates with financial need will be prioritized, but all will be considered. Priority will be given to applicants who are actively engaged in education advocacy, immigrant rights, or other work related to supporting undocumented students.
