The Dream.US is the largest scholarship for Dreamers, partnering with 70 low-priced colleges and providing $33,000 per student to cover the cost of higher education.
The announcement comes at a time of uncertainty for DACA recipients, who are not eligible for federal financial aid, most state aid, and who often express uncertainty about their ability to afford college.
"Our students are highly motivated and determined to succeed in college and in life".
Currently, "2,850 students are enrolled in college under the programme", the fund said in a statement on Friday. "But our scholars are thriving academically". Still, 94 percent of those receiving scholarships return to college after their first year, greater than the national average of 72 percent.
The program is less than four years old so there are no graduation rates yet. We would invite anyone who questions the value of Dreamers to please come meet some of our students. The Obama-era provided temporary legal protection to around 700,000 dreamers that were living in the United States.
