Please note: This year, Golden Door Scholars is open to DACA students from all states! We have also expanded our program to include robust internship support. 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.
Golden Door will host two Webinars to answer FAQ's and provide tips on submitting college applications to give you the best chance of being offered admission to the school of your choice. The first Webinar will be on Monday, 10/1/18 and the second will be on Friday 10/26/18. More information will be sent to those who have applied before each Webinar.
Scholarship recipients will receive funding to support tuition, room and board for a four-year degree at Golden Door partner schools and schools offering in-state tuition to students with DACA status, beginning Fall semester, 2019. Students who have applied to or are interested in other colleges should also apply. We will support students at non-partner schools on a case-by-case basis. Note that Golden Door will match scholarship recipients to partner and other colleges, based on student preference and school admission slot availability.
