Undocumented students are eligible to qualify for a number of scholarship opportunities in the U.S. regardless of their immigration status. Funding for higher education is incredibly important for undocumented students, especially in states where undocumented students do not qualify for in-state tuition or state financial aid. Lack of access to financial assistance is often a major barrier to higher education for undocumented students.
The scholarships and fellowships compiled below are available to undocumented students across the U.S. at the undergraduate and graduate level.
