AB540 Scholarships for Undocumented Students(Dream Act)

Posted by & filed under AB540, Scholarship.

Undocumented students can start applying for state financial aid beginning April 2, 2012! The 2012-13 California Dream Act Application for AB 131 Institutional grants and community college fee waivers (payable starting January 2013) is now available! Please share widely! For any questions, please see website. Students are being advised to  “see their institution’s financial aid office ASAP about application information”.

Due to the high need of this time sensitive information the PCC Undocumented Allies along with the Students United Without Boundaries Club will be having a DIY workshop to review the current Dream Act application to trouble shoot any questions or issues that may come up. We invite you to participate in this first general meeting. Also we hope that you can keep the Allies and students posted about any upcoming workshops, meetings, or event’s you may know about for these undocumented students in the near future.


This workshop will be hosted at the TLC
