THE NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP
We think of our National Scholarship as the “Pell Grant” for highly motivated undocumented students with significant, unmet financial need. While we consider your GPA and test scores, we place great emphasis on your demonstrated commitment to community service and your ability to overcome the barriers and challenges that undocumented students face each and every day.
About the Award
The National Scholarship Award will cover your tuition and fees up to a maximum of $16,500 for an associate degree and $33,000 for a bachelor’s degree, at one of our Partner Colleges. Please note, some Scholars may be eligible for an additional stipend of up to $4,000 (or $1,000 per year) for books, supplies, and transportation.
The award is renewable each year – you simply have to meet the continuing eligibility criteria.
