scholarship for dreamers engCUNY is thrilled to partner with TheDream.US, a national foundation that provides college scholarships to undocumented students across the country.  Over 300 scholarship recipients are enrolled at CUNY colleges this fall, and we look forward to increasing this number even more.

A new scholarship application round opened in September and will run through February 15, 2016.  I am hoping that your team can help to spread the word about this amazing opportunity – undocumented students who are DACA-eligible can receive up to $25,000 in college tuition, and once enrolled in CUNY scholarship recipients receive special advisement and training.  Since currently enrolled college students are not eligible to apply, your continuing education students represent a viable pool of scholarship applicants.

Some important notes about the scholarship:

  • Currently enrolled college students are not eligible to apply.
  • Scholarship liaisons at every CUNY college serving undergraduate students are available to discuss the scholarship application with prospective candidates – their contact info is listed here.
