The City University of New York Becas Scholarship is offering $4500 to $6030 to CUNY undergraduate and graduate students who meet three criteria: academic excellence, financial need, and commitment to service in the Mexican community.
DEADLINE: February 28, 2015
Can undocumented students apply? Yes! As stated in their website, “The scholarship primarily aids students with little or no access to other funding sources. Because of the emphasis on financial need and the fact that the program does not discriminate based on immigration status, this program has been particularly successful in aiding undocumented students.”
Do you currently have to be enrolled in CUNY to apply? No! Their website states that, “As a matter of fact, many of our applicants are high school seniors, GED students or students who are not currently enrolled in college. You MUST enroll in CUNY to receive the scholarship, but not to apply.”
