Our DREAMS Scholarship

HELPING DREAMERS, TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS AND UNDOCUMENTED LATINO COLLEGE STUDENTS

Hispanic Access Foundation’s latest initiative, “Our DREAMS Scholarship” (Dedicated Resources for Emergency Aid & Means for Success) will provide monetary relief and educational resources to Dreamers and other partially protected (TPS) or undocumented students.

Dreamers are those whose parents brought them into the United States before their 16th birthday (and were under the age of 31 in 2012) without proper documentation. Now, Dreamers are in school, have a degree, or are serving in the military. But, the costs are steep – and we’re not just talking about just the filing fees. Even though the Supreme Court allowed DACA to continue, there are new burdens being placed on the program that create more challenges for the Dreamers.

Dreamers are part of our community, and they contribute to our country’s prosperity. Over the next 10 years, Dreamers will contribute an estimated $433 billion to the GDP, $60 billion in fiscal impact, and $12.3 billion in tax dollars directly to Social Security and Medicare if they are allowed to continue to work legally in the U.S.

As we’ve seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the most vulnerable communities are people who are undocumented people. People still have bills to pay. Because our undocumented youth already have limited resources, we want to mitigate that by providing emergency aid funds.

OUR GOAL:

Thanks to our generous donors, HAF will be able to match every donation made to Our DREAMS Scholarship by 100%, up to $25,000. These donations will be an investment to the future of at least 100 individuals. Through our fundraising effort from October to December, and in support of our partners, we hope to become a sustaining resource for our Dreamers and provide hope for them during this time of turmoil.

Hispanic Access Foundation’s team has a passion to catapult the Latino community into action. Our unique mission is to provide Latino leaders with the access, capacity, and the belief to create big changes. Through this project, we will continue to build a positive narrative for our community and provide people the opportunity to support those who need our help.
