Successful DACA scholarship grantees will receive a check made out to the Department of Homeland Security to submit with their DACA renewal application.
There is no minimum or maximum income requirement. While the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recommends filing for renewal between 150 and 120 days from when your DACA expires, requests received earlier than 150 days and up to 365 days in advance are currently being accepted. However, this could result in an overlap between your current DACA and your renewal.
Scholarship funds are available to individuals who:
· Have or previously had DACA status AND
· Have a completed DACA renewal application AND
· Who reside, work, or go to school in Seattle
· Note that the address on your scholarship application must be the same as the address on your DACA renewal application.
