2011 DREAM ACT STUDENT ACTIVIST SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Since MALDEF's founding, the civil rights organization has awarded scholarships to students who further MALDEF's mission of advancing the civil rights of the Latino community in the United States. This year, MALDEF will be awarding scholarships to students, graduate or undergraduate, who have demonstrated their commitment to Latino civil rights through active involvement in advocating for the DREAM Act. MALDEF will offer scholarships of $5,000 each to selected DREAM Act student activists. The DREAM Act Student Activist Scholarship is open to students who will be enrolled at an American-accredited college or university in 2011-2012.
