CT DACA Renewal Scholarship Fund
CT Students for a Dream is a youth-led statewide network fighting for the rights of undocumented youth and their families.
On January 13th that it would resume accepting DACA renewal applications. Until further notice, USCIS is currently and will continue accept DACA renewal applications.

USCIS will accept DACA renewals from:
- DACA recipients whose DACA has expired or will expire on or after Sept 5, 2016 can apply for a renewal.
- DACA recipients who had DACA but whose DACA expired before Sept 5, 2016 can apply as an initial applicant, not as a renewal.

USCIS will not accept any first-time DACA applications.
- If you never had DACA you cannot apply.

- USCIS strongly encourages that DACA renewals are filed between 150-120 days before your DACA expiration date.
- DACA renewals filed earlier than 150 days before the expiration date will be accepted, but this can result in an overlap between your old and new DACA, meaning that your renewal would be extended for less than 2 full years from the date that your current DACA expires.
- There’s a lot we don’t know right now. We do not know how long USCIS will continue to accept DACA renewals. The decision can be overruled and stopped by a higher court any time. The Dept if Justice has filed an appeal of the injunction this week.  It is recommended that if you fulfill the requirements, that you assess whether to apply immediately.

C4D is committed to keep fighting for the most marginalized in our communities. We are fundraising to be able to provide DACA renewal scholarships for applicants with financial need.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please fill out the form below.

NOTE: As a community, we are working hard to raise enough funds for as many DACA renewals as possible. Applications will be judged on financial need, with priority to those whose DACA already expired(Scholarships are meant to assist those who would not be able to renew their DACA without financial assistance).

The more money we raise, the more we can provide. All the money raised will go toward DACA renewal applications (and is tax-deductible). Please share the fundraising page with your networks to help us get funds for your and others' applications:  bit.ly/C4DDonate - scroll down and choose "C4D Scholarship"
