Golden Door Scholars is a nonprofit that provides undocumented students with college scholarships and internship/career opportunities. They currently have a scholarship opportunity open to undocumented who are eligible for DACA or TPS. Golden Door Scholars recipients who attend one of their partner schools will receive funding to cover tuition, room and board for a four-year degree. (Scholarship recipients who choose to attend non-partner schools will be funded on a case-by-case basis.) Golden Door Scholars will also have access to mentors, assistance in pursuing internships and other career-building opportunities.
Who is eligible for this scholarship opportunity?
- Applicants must be eligible for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) or TPS (Temporary Protected Status)
- Applicants should be high performers with strong academic records.
- Applicants from states where DACA students must pay out-of-state tuition at public universities and community colleges will be given strong preference.
- The Golden Door scholarship is highly competitive; the selective process will give preference to students interested in careers in technology-led industries/roles.
