The NYSYLC Awards Program was founded by undocumented youth in 2007 who understood first hand the challenges and struggles youth faced when trying to continue their education. The NYSYLC Awards Program aims to support immigrant youth, regardless of their immigration status, advance themselves and their communities, pursue higher education and continue to contribute to our society in the manner of their choosing. The NYSYLC Awards is largely funded by youth-led grassroots fundraising efforts, as well as, generous donations and support from individuals and organizations. Please consider making a donation today at http://www.nysylc.org/donate.
Awardees will be selected based on community involvement, financial need and commitment to the immigrant rights movement. A small emphasis will be placed on academic achievement. Applicants without any form of immigration relief, like DACA, will be prioritized. If you wish to donate to our scholarship program or have any questions please contact us.
