No Comments 30 June 2014

We believe that every student who wants to go to college should have access to the resources necessary to get there.

To try and help these fantastic students, we’ve combed our scholarship database and put together a list of scholarships for undocumented, international, and immigrant students, including those that do not require US citizenship. In addition, we found many great scholarships that our partners and friends have created for undocumented students, and have included those as well.

MALDEF also recommends directly contacting these organizations to verify if you meet their specific eligibility criteria. If you know of any scholarships that are not on this list, please send an email with a link to the scholarship to our content manager.
