  • Are you a DREAMer?  ¿Eres un DREAMer?

    Paying for college is tough, especially for undocumented students. The US Government does not allow undocumented students to receive any federal financial aid. Furthermore, most states also do not allow undocumented students access to taxpayer-funded aid (however, some states do! See an official list of these states here). Here are some scholarships crafted specilfically for undocumented youth trying to finance their education.
