VASQUEZ LAW FIRM DACA DREAMER SCHOLARSHIP
Through DACA, undocumented students may be able to pursue a higher education in the United States. We understand how difficult it can be for many of these students to receive financial assistance when attending college. Through our Vasquez Law Firm DACA Dreamer Scholarship, we hope to make the dream of pursuing a college education more attainable for these students.
The Vasquez Law Firm DACA Dreamer Scholarship awards $1,000 to two exceptional students each semester to use toward their educational expenses. We are honored to help these students continue to fight for their American Dream.
Applicant must be a DACA recipient pursuing a higher education
Applicant must have a 3.5 grade point average or higher
Applicant must be enrolled in an accredited college/university for the Spring 2023 semester
Applicant must be at least 17 years of age
All students must fill out the application at the bottom of this page. Applicants should include their contact information, an unofficial academic transcript, and proof of enrollment if their transcript does not provide evidence that they are enrolled at an accredited university or college for the Fall 2023 semester. We also ask each student to provide documentation proving their DACA status, which may include a copy of their Notice of Deferred Action or Employment Authorization Document.
Additionally, to apply for this scholarship, students must submit a video of 5 minutes or less answering ONE of the following prompts:
A. How has DACA benefited your life? If you could change one thing about the program, what would it be?
