DACA Scholarships Transform 150 DREAMer Lives – And You Can Help Too! PDF Print E-mail

It is a time of giving and reflection. As we celebrate our many institutional blessings, we are especially thankful for being able to provide 150 DACA scholarships to 150 amazing DREAMers this year.

Announced by President Obama in 2012, DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, allows qualifying immigrants – also known as “DREAMers” - to obtain protection from deportation and work permits for at least two years.

Yet the high cost – almost $500 - prevents many from applying. HF’s DACA scholarship is transformative because it enables DREAMers to apply and, if accepted, truly pursue their dreams, whether it’s in the form of something as simple as a driver’s license, or something as life-changing as going to college or getting a legal job.
