Last week, a federal court ordered the Trump administration to begin accepting new applications to the DACA program. While the USICS is not yet doing so, it is important to be prepared for the moment they do.
We encourage you to:
- Continue to check the USCIS website for the latest updates on when they will begin to accept new applications.
- Start preparing your application forms and assembling the required documents, if you meet the DACA Criteria found here.
- Seek counsel from an attorney or DOJ-accredited organization on your eligibility for DACA before applying.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed.
And remember . . . with or without DACA status, we will continue to fund your scholarship to help you complete your college degree (providing that you meet our ongoing eligibility requirements).
