The University of La Verne is proud to announce its continued partnership with TheDream.US, a multimillion dollar national scholarship foundation dedicated to assisting undocumented immigrant students with $25,000 scholarships for their college education.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students may apply if they are new undergraduates or have graduated from a community college with an Associate’s Degree. The period for submitting applications for consideration of the scholarship ends Feb. 15, 2016.
It is our second year participating in this much-needed program, and we remain the only California private university that is partnered with TheDream.US . Within two years of the 2012 DACA initiative passing, more than 670,000 people applied for deferred action. Applications were approved for more than 160,000 immigrants living in California, and many children in this group may set their sights on college.
La Verne hopes to aid as many as 10 DREAMers from this round of applicants.
Undocumented students from the Inland Valley and beyond are invited to apply. We encourage you to share this information with family, friends or professional contacts who may know someone who could benefit from this scholarship.
The application and information on the program is available online at http://www.thedream.us/scholars.
