We are happy to be partnering with the Dream Pursuers Club at Back of the Yards College Prep this year in their efforts to offer a yearly scholarship for undocumented students pursuing a college degree.
The Dream Pursuers Club provides a space for undocumented students at Back of the Yards College Prep to support each other as they navigate unique challenges in high school and the college application process. One especially great barrier that students face is access to funding for college: ineligible for federal financial aid and with increasingly limited access to scholarships, undocumented students often struggle to fund their college goals.
This scholarship sends our students off to college with the confidence that comes with knowing that their school and community are invested in their success. We hope you will join us in supporting our soon-to-be-graduates as they pursue their dreams in college and beyond.
