Scholarships to Eligible Individuals for DACA Renewal Fees

El Centro de la Raza will administer DACA scholarship funds starting the week of March 16 through June 30. As funds are limited, this service is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Scholarship funds are available to individuals who have or previously had DACA status, have completed a DACA renewal application, and who reside in Seattle, or work in Seattle, or go to school in Seattle. Scholarship applicants must come to El Centro de la Raza with a scholarship application form and a completed DACA renewal application.
