Undocumented / DACA Students



Following are websites for scholarships as well as informational/guiding websites for undocumented/DACA students.  


CORE proudly sponsors this scholarship to help undocumented students continue on their academic path. This scholarship is a response to the lack of financial aid that undocumented students face on their road to college.

The HSF Scholarship is designed to assist students of Hispanic heritage to obtain a university degree.

Students who receive the Dream Award have completed at least their first year of their college education, have a significant financial need, and have overcome obstacles through sheer determination.

The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund aids people active in movements for social and economic justice. These need-based scholarships are awarded to students who are able to do academic work at the college or university level or are enrolled in a trade or technical program and who are active in the progressive movement.


Since 2008, COFEM and its affiliated federations, as well as sponsoring partners, have come together to provide scholarships to outstanding students who are immigrants, sons, and daughters of immigrants, and AB-540 or DACA students pursuing their dream of completing a higher education degree.

The “Que Llueva Café” Scholarship aims to support the dreams, hopes, and aspirations of college-bound undocumented students so that they can earn their college education and allow for all of their hard work and sacrifice to persevere. This scholarship program strives to make a world of difference. ¡Ójala que llueva café!

The MALDEF Scholarship Resource Guide is a free, informative resource guide for students, parents, and educators with an extensive list of scholarships, including many that do not inquire about immigration status.

If you’re a undocumented or DACAmented student, finding financial aid for college can be tricky. Undocumented students do not qualify for federal aid, and only a handful of states offer state grants to undocumented students. There are a number of scholarships for undocumented students out there, however.
