Dream Pursuers started this petition to TheDream.US and

We call on TheDream.US to live up to their mission by expanding scholarship eligibility to all undocumented graduating seniors. TheDream.US offers the only national full-ride scholarship available for these students, who have persisted and succeeded academically in spite of their immigration status and ineligibility for Federal financial aid.  

The Dream.US National Scholarship currently requires applicants to meet the DACA eligibility criteria, which for those in the Class of 2019 apply only to students brought to the U.S. before the age of 6 or 7.  This excludes most soon-to-be graduates, including many who were brought to the U.S. before they turned 15, have completed most of their education in the U.S., and would qualify for the DREAM Act if it were to pass today.  

With this in mind, we submitted a letter to TheDream.US requesting that they consider all academically qualified undocumented students for the Dream.US National Scholarship. With this letter, we also submitted applications of several highly qualified but ineligible students from the South West Side of Chicago.  

Sign this petition to demand that The Dream.Us consider these applications and offer ALL undocumented students the opportunity to receive this essential funding for college.
