Scholarships and fellowships are essential for many undocumented students to pay for higher education, especially students who do not qualify for in-state tuition and state-based financial aid. Undocumented students pursuing higher education need to know that scholarships and fellowships are available to them—regardless of their immigration status.
This year, we’ve added 178 new scholarships and fellowships to our 2021 Scholarship and Fellowship Lists. The complete list now contains 427 undergraduate and 306 graduate/post-graduate scholarships and fellowships that do not require proof of citizenship or legal permanent residency (495 are open to undocumented individuals without DACA):
