Scholarships for undocumented students
SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM Since MALDEF’s founding, the civil rights organization has awarded scholarships to support the higher educational attainment of students who seek to further MALDEF’s mission of advancing the civil rights of the Latino community in the United States.
In 2012, MALDEF will offer scholarships of up to $5,000 each to selected DREAM Act student activists. MALDEF seeks to support the nation’s college and graduate student leaders who have been outstanding advocates for the DREAM Act and all immigrant rights.
All current college and graduate students are eligible to apply. Students seeking to enroll in college or university for the first time (or to re-enroll following a leave of absence) are also eligible to apply if they will be enrolled in a college or university before the end of 2012.
