Mission Asset Fund, a San Francisco-based nonprofit with a long history of supporting Dreamers, along with generous support from the Weingart Foundation, announced it is now providing $495 scholarships so DACA recipients can safely renew their status. Any individual whose DACA status is set to expire between now and March 5, 2018, may still apply for renewal. The application deadline for these renewals is Oct. 5. Dreamers can apply for the scholarship at LC4DACA.org and receive a check made out to the Department of Homeland Security within 48 hours. These grants are available to community college, California State University and University of California students. Please contact programs@missionassetfund.org with any questions.
