Empowering undocumented young people to achieve educational and career goals
UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS
ABOUT THESE RESOURCES
Since 2009, E4FC has developed resources to help undocumented students across the United States find scholarships to pay for college. These resources have been assembled and updated by undocumented young people who have participated in E4FC’s various programs. Thanks to the support of students, educators and parents like you, in the past year alone our scholarship resources have been accessed over 60,000 times.
HOW TO USE THESE RESOURCES:
Students: use these resources as early as possible in your college admissions process. There are handy scholarships listed for high school seniors, undergraduates in various points of their journey, and graduate and professional applicants. Use the databases to prioritize what’s most important to you – the size of the scholarship, whether it’s DACA-friendly or any number of other possibilities.
Remember that many scholarships are due between November and May, so plan accordingly!
Parents: use these resources to better understand the scholarship possibilities available to your child as they prepare to go to college. For more resources to support parents of undocumented students, check out our Parent Guides.
Remember that undocumented students CAN and DO successfully go to college!
Educators: whether you work your magic in a classroom, within school administration or as staff at a college access organization, these resources are essential for working with undocumented students. The databases are a great way to help students narrow their scholarship search.
We strongly urge you to print at least one set of the colorful mini-guides for display in your office setting; they’re a great way to show support to students who may be working up the courage to ask for help. For more resources for Educators, see our Educator Guides.
Most importantly, share these resources with your colleagues!
Scholarship Providers: Use these resources as inspiration and data for how other scholarship providers are serving undocumented students. Whether your scholarship has a long history of supporting undocumented youth or is just beginning to consider expanding your eligibility requirements, these scholarships serve as examples and models to learn from.
