Hunter College has partnered with TheDream.US, a national scholarship fund for college students to provide financial support to highly motivated individuals who have DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) or TPS (Temporary Protected Status) approval and who, without financial aid, cannot afford a college education.

The scholarship can award up to $12,500 for tuition and fees toward an Associate Degree and/or up to $25,000 for tuition and fees toward a Bachelor’s Degree.
Scholarship Application Deadline: October 26, 2014 (EXTENDED)

New York Times College Scholarship
The New York Times is pleased to announce the 2014-15 New York Times College Scholarship Program. Since 1999, The Times has supported more than 250 extraordinary graduates of New York City high schools who have attended colleges across the United States and who have studied in programs around the world.
The Scholarship Program is open to high school seniors in public, private or parochial schools in the five boroughs who have demonstrated superlative academic achievement despite significant obstacles — financial or otherwise. The articles on The New York Times website about previous winners describe the type of challenges our scholars have faced.
This year the New York Times intend to support ten students with awards. To receive a scholarship of up to $7,500 a year, students must enroll in a full-time course of study leading to a baccalaureate degree at an accredited college in the United States. Each scholarship will be renewable, as long as the student maintains a good academic record.
Due to limited administrative resources, the New York Times ask schools to encourage students who best meet the application criteria to apply. The target is 10 top applicants per school. The application deadline is Monday, October 27, 2014
. All applications must be completed and submitted online at this web location: http://www.nytimes.com/scholarship
Please feel free to contact our hotline phone number, 212-556-1923, should you have any questions about the process.
