The Unafraid Scholarship was founded by the Boston Teacher Union’s Unafraid Educators in order to provide financial support for students who are not eligible to receive financial aid from the federal government due to their immigration status. It is a one-time grant made payable to the recipient's college of choice. The amount of the scholarship will depend on the particular financial need of the student, the number of qualified applicants, and the funds raised in a given year. Prior grants have ranged from $500 to $4,000.
In order to qualify for the Unafraid Scholarship students must:
• Be undocumented (including DACA and TPS holders)• Be a graduate of the Boston Public Schools• There is no GPA requirement
Students must submit all materials by June 1st to Unafraidscholarship@gmail.com
