Act Six Leadership & Scholarship Initiative: Open to undocumented high school students


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.
Act Six scholars must be:
  • high school seniors planning to graduate in 2017 or
  • have previously graduated from high school in 2016 or 2015
  • passionate about learning
  • eager to foster intercultural relationships
  • willing to step out of their comfort zones
  • committed to serving those around them
  • ready to make a difference on campus and at home
