Undocumented/DACA Scholarships

YOUR CITIZENSHIP STATUS DOES NOT DISQUALIFY YOU FROM NWACC SCHOLARSHIPS!

A couple NWACC scholarships require that the applicants are U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, but the vast majority of the scholarships do not. If an NWACC scholarship requires citizenship, it will be listed as a requirement. So, if it does not list citizenship and you meet the other requirements, you are able to (and should) apply!

 

The following scholarships require that students are undocumented/DACA to apply. To see the complete list of NWACC Scholarships to see what other scholarships you might be eligible for, please check out the alphabetized list.
