HSF has created this page specifically for undocumented students ”Dreamers,” as we get many inquiries about eligibility for scholarships. Effective immediately, students who have obtained DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) status, are eligible and can now apply for HSF’s General Scholarship during this scholarship term. Scholarships open up January 15th to March 30th (extended deadline April 2nd 11:59 pm PST)! Click here to view our scholarships.
