By CAROLINA VALDIVIA
The Act Six Leadership & Scholarship Initiative is a full-tuition and full-need scholarship that connects local faith-based community affiliates with faith and social justice-based colleges to equip emerging urban and community leaders to engage the college campus and their communities at home. Based on the FAQ section of this program, it is open to undocumented students in the following regions: Tacoma-Seattle, Portland, Yakima Valley, Spokane, and Minnesota.
Once selected, Act Six scholars participate in five months of intensive training with their cadre, equipping them to support each other, succeed academically and grow as service-minded leaders and agents of transformation. After five months of training with their cadre, Act Six scholars begin college ready to engage the campus and community with a built-in support system and a sense of purpose as service-minded leaders and agents of transformation.
