We at Goldstein Immigration Lawyers believe that immigrants are essential to the growth of our nation, contributing to every aspect of our society from culture, education, technology, etc. According to the Pew Research Center, the average DREAMer is in their mid-twenties, meaning most of these individuals are university students or working professionals.
We created the DREAM Act Scholarship for DREAMers, immigrants, and first-generation university students. We would like to hear from students about their experience growing up in America, the good or the bad, and ways you believe the United States could change to improve the immigration system for future generations.
This is a $1,000 scholarship to be used toward pursuing your educational goals. The deadline for this $1,000 scholarship is July 31, 2023. See below for further information on eligibility and the application process.
