  • 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.
    Los estudios universitarios cuestan dinero, y pagar por ellos es difícil.  Si estás indocumentado en los Estados Unidos (también se te conoce como DREAMer), haz click aquí para ver una lista de becas que se están ofreciendo a los DREAMers. ¡Tus estudios universitarios valen la pena!
