As you may know, The City University of New York has partnered 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. We want to work with our partners throughout the City to spread the word about this amazing opportunity – undocumented students who are DACA-eligible can receiveup to $25,000 in college tuition, and once enrolled in CUNY scholarship recipients receive special advisement and training.
Some important notes about the scholarship:
- High school seniors who will graduate in 2016 as well as high school graduates who have not yet enrolled in college are the most viable candidates for the scholarships for first-time college students.
- Community college students who will graduate in 2016 or community college graduates who have not yet enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program are the most viable candidates for the scholarships for community college graduates.
- 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.
