By EGP News Service
The Council of Mexican Federation in North America (COFEM), a not-for-profit organization serving the immigrant community, along with affiliated federations and The New Partnerships Foundation have established a scholarship program to support immigrant students that deserve equal opportunities and access to higher education this year.
In recognition of student’s financial need, the scholarship will range from $2,000 to $3,000, and be awarded to immigrant students, or descendants of immigrants, who are in good academic standing, participate in extra-curricular activities, have job experience or community participation, and/or demonstrate a unique life story and financial need.
“At the same time that we take a proactive attitude to grant these scholarships to immigrant students, we continue to strongly exhort the Governor to make the California Dream Act a reality; a bill that will allow undocumented students to apply and compete for financial aid.”
Application deadline is Oct.24. All applications should be delivered to COFEM at 125 Paseo de la Plaza, Suite 101, Los Angeles, CA 90012, attn. COFEM Scholarships. For more information visit online:www.cofem.orgPrint This Post
