The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) helps to administer scholarship opportunities provided by their partners. Some of the scholarships that they list are open to all undocumented students, while others are only open to those with DACA, for example. Please review each of the scholarship’s criteria featured on their website to see if you qualify.
Here are some of the basic eligibility requirements:
- “Demonstrate financial need if required by scholarship sponsor;
- Meet specific criteria for the scholarships to which they are applying;
- Students must currently attend a HACU-member college or university in the U.S. or Puerto Rico at the time applications are completed and scholarship awards are made. Students transferring schools, the school must also be a HACU-member to be eligible to apply. For the most up-to-date listing of HACU-member institutions, please click here;
NOTE: Scholarships are ONLY for enrolled college students. All students must have completed their first semester of freshman year at the time of applying.“
The HACU continually adds scholarship opportunities to their website with varying deadlines so it is a good idea to bookmark their page!

Please note that this scholarship program was first posted by HACU. The link to the scholarship opportunity may not work after the deadline has passed.
Kenia is a double major in Sociology and Social Policy & Public Service at the University of California, Irvine. She was born in Tijuana, Baja California, and migrated to the U.S. when she was 8 years old. Kenia’s parents always emphasized the importance of going to college but lacked the knowledge of how to navigate the US college application system. With the support of several non-profit organizations, Kenia was able to successfully apply to college. Her journey towards higher education has influenced her into pursuing a career in public service and advocacy for resources for Latinx youth and the undocumented community.
