Golden Door Scholars: Scholarship for Students with DACA



Golden Door Scholars provides scholarships and internship and professional development opportunities to students with DACA from all states.

Scholarship recipients will receive funding to support tuition, room and board for a four-year degree at Golden Door’s 55 partner schools across the country including Davidson College, Wake Forest University and Emory University. Students who have applied to or are interested in other colleges should also apply. They will support students at non-partner schools on a case-by-case basis. Recent high school graduates, currently enrolled undergrad, and transfer students are all welcome to apply.

Since 2013, they have awarded college scholarships to 255 exceptional students from an applicant pool of over 4000 students. Strong preference will be given to applicants who plan to concentrate their studies in one of the following areas (or one similar): Engineering, Computer Science, Technology or Math.

Application deadline: Thursday, October 25th, 2018 at 11:59pm EST

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, so applying early is helpful. Applications received after Thursday, October 25th, 2018 will not be considered.
