"I don't feel as vulnerable anymore. I know I have support, and I don't need to be afraid."
Thank you for your interest in Immigrant Rising’s Scholarship Fund. We wanted to let you know that we will not be accepting applications for 2020-2021. This was a difficult decision and we realize you may be disappointed.
We have tremendous pride in the more than 175 scholarship recipients we have supported since 2007. Their extraordinary accomplishments and contributions motivate us to pursue broader-reaching strategies that increase the overall amount of financial aid available to undocumented students and improve undocumented students’ ability to access this aid.
In the coming year, we will continue to expand our scholarship resources. We will also work with other scholarship providers to open up access to students regardless of citizenship or residency status.
Here are some scholarship resources that may be of support to you right now:
