In 2006, the state of Arizona passed Proposition 300, which bans undocumented students from receiving in-state tuition benefits or state financial aid. As a response, the Isac Amaya Foundation began to raise funds to offer scholarships to undocumented students who have to pay out-of-state tuition and are ineligible for government-funded scholarships. Here are three scholarship opportunities from the Isac Amaya Foundation:
1) Isa Amaya DREAM Scholarship: This $2,500 scholarship opportunity is available to undergraduate students in the state of Arizona who are DACA eligible/non-eligible and are attending or plan to attend an Arizona university (public or private). This scholarship is renewable for the Fall 2017 semester if the student is in good standing.
2) Isac Amaya University Scholarship: This $2,500 scholarship is available to high school seniors or undergraduate students in the state of Arizona who are Mexican or of Mexican decent and are attending or plan to attend an Arizona university (public or private).
3) Isac Amaya Junior Scholarship: This $1,250 scholarship is available to high school seniors or students attending a community college in Yuma County or in Southern Arizona. The scholarship is open to students who are Mexican or of Mexican descent.
The deadline for all three scholarships is on June 30, 2016
