All scholars are required to be approved for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) before scholarship funds are released.
While most of our students attend Golden Door partner schools, we support students at other accredited 4-year institutions on a case-by-case basis. We are also always developing relationships at new partner schools.
Scholarships are awarded to academically successful students who are involved in extracurricular activities and have shown leadership qualities and determination despite the barriers their status presents.
Please double-check that all required fields are completed, including transcript and essay uploads. If you still cannot complete submission, please email email@example.com with your questions.
Reach out as early as possible and encourage them to continue their education. Let them know that their status does not prevent them from attending college. Click here to view the E4FC Guide to Helping Undocumented Students.

DACA is the result of President Obama’s 2012 Executive Order and is permission from U.S. immigration officials to stay in the U.S. for two years without fearing deportation. It is for youth who arrived as children and have lived in the U.S. for five years before June 15, 2012. DACA recipients can apply for driver’s licenses and work permits. Click here to learn more.
