Greetings to our National Partner Colleges,
We are excited to share that our 2017-2018 National Scholarship round opens on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, and closes on March 1, 2018.
The only change in the eligibility criteria is that applicants can have either DACA or TPS OR they may certify that they meet immigration eligibility criteria (that mirror the DACA eligibility criteria).
All applicants must agree that they will apply for lawful presence or lawful status as soon as the law allows them to do so.
On Thursday, November 2, 2017, at 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST we will host a promotional kickoff for our Partner Colleges covering the following:
- An overview of the eligibility criteria, important deadlines, and the application, selection, and award processes; and
- Strategies for promoting the scholarship in your communities, including innovative and successful approaches Partner Colleges have used in past rounds.
Many of you are familiar with the promotion processes and do not need to join. If you are new to our program, we encourage you to sign up at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1421214822280749059
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to join the webinar and a calendar invite. The webinar will be recorded.
Please note – promotional materials will be sent next week to the address you sent us, or that we had on file from previous years. Please be on the lookout for these in the following weeks.
Our goal is to award over 800 scholarships to DREAMers and we look forward to working with you to build a robust applicant pool of Dreamers from your communities.
