DACA EMERGENCY FUND INITIATIVE

Our scholarship awardees are a very important asset to the economy and development of this country. For the past five years, many of our beneficiaries have been Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.  In response to the Trump Administration announcement to rescind the DACA program within the next six months, The Anhelo Project has launched an Emergency Fund Initiative for those DACA recipients in need of renewing their status before the October 5, 2017 deadline. During these uncertain times, we stand with our students and their families to push forward for a resolution that will protect all immigrants through a permanent legislative solution.

Our DACA Emergency Fund Initiative will cover the Department of Homeland Security application filing fee of $495.00. For fullest consideration, recipients must meet the following criteria:  

Must be enrolled within a college or university within the State of Illinois 

Must be reapplying for DACA no later than the October 5, 2017 deadline

During these uncertain times, we stand with our students and their families to push forward for a resolution that will protect all immigrants through a permanent legislative solution.
