Golden Door Scholars: Scholarship and Mentorship Program Open to Undocumented College Students with and without DACA

“The Golden Door Scholarship provides significant college scholarships, career and fellowship support, mentorship, and community-building opportunities to high-achieving undocumented students. Scholarship recipients will receive funding for a four-year degree at a Golden Door Scholars partner school (and other schools) beginning in the Fall 2024 semester. Tuition, room, and board are covered at Golden Door partner schools.” The program encourages recipients to attend one of their partner schools, but it is not required. Please see their list of preferred college majors to support.

These are the eligibility requirements:

  • “All undocumented students (with or without DACA, TPS, and other temporary statuses) are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants can be high school seniors, recent high school graduates, current college/community college students, or obtained a GED (General Education Development) certificate from a United States Program
  • Applicants must live in the United States for at least four (4) years before applying for the Golden Door Scholarship.”

Golden Door Scholarships will be having a general information session about their program over Zoom on Sep 14, 2023, at 5:00 pm ET. You can register for their info session here
