As a Golden Door Scholar, each DACA student receives a scholarship empowering her or him to earn a bachelor's degree and pursue a dream career. Eligible students may be high school seniors, recent high school graduates, or currently enrolled in college pursuing an undergraduate degree.

In most states, DACA students cannot get in-state tuition. Many private college educations cost well over $200,000. By donating to Golden Door Scholars, you are helping a Scholar cover expenses such as textbooks, tuition, and room and board.
