SEATTLE DACA SCHOLARSHIP ASSISTANCE

WHEN: Until funds run out

WHERE: No walkins; apply online or by phone; must have capacity to video chat

WHAT: Through a partnership with the City of Seattle Office of Immigrant & Refugee Affairs (OIRA) and Facebook, El Centro de la Raza will administer DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) scholarship funds on a first-come, first-served basis until funds run out. 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

TO APPLY:

1) Complete your DACA Scholarship Application (download in Word or PDF)

· Note that the address on your scholarship application must be the same as the address on your DACA renewal application.

· You must have a copy of your Employment Authorization Document (EAD)available during your appointment.

2) Schedule a Phone Appointment (no walkins, and you must have the capacity to video chat)
