Undocumented students, including AB 540 students, are eligible to apply for scholarships that do not require US citizenship or permanent residency.
Scholarships are awarded to students who are AB540 students, regardless of national origin, who have submitted an Affidavit to Admissions. Financial Need, 2.00 GPA and full time enrollment are required. Scholarships are for any major, only for Undergraduates. Preference will be given to first generation college students.
As first generation and undocumented university students at Cal State San Marcos,
we know the obstacles and adverse situations that many first-time students face when
applying to and continuing college. Our goal is to reach those students with infinite
potential and help them overcome those financial and social barriers. This scholarship
contributes to their ability to pursue a higher education, which is an important asset
to them as individuals and for us as a collective society.
STAND is operated by university students and graduates who want to build relationships with college and college bound students, to guide them to be successful during their college experience, and to help financially with this scholarship.
*Please remember, do not use your DACA issue Social Security number for Financial Aid and Scholarship Applications.
