2016 Out of the Shadows Scholarship: Open to undocumented students in Florida


CHISPAS is an organization dedicated to addressing the needs and issues of the immigrant community through education and awareness.  Since 2012, CHISPAS has been awarding students the “Out of the Shadows” Scholarships to support their attainment of a higher education in Florida.  This year, the organization is offering a $600 scholarship for two students, one high school senior and one college student.

To be eligible, students must:

  • Be undocumented
    • “an undocumented student is one who does not have legal U.S. permanent residency, U.S. citizenship or temporary protection status. Students who have applied and/or received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are eligible and encouraged to apply”
  • Have graduated from a Florida high school or have a GED certificate
  • Be enrolled in a Florida college, university, vocational school or technical institution for the Fall 2016 semester

The deadline to apply is September 12, 2016
