You may apply to both the R'Dream Scholarship and Book Grant, but you will only be awarded one per quarter. Be sure to reapply every quarter! If you don’t get it the first time, you may get it the next!
Each R'Dream Scholarship award is up to $500.
Deadline: Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.
If we have the textbook you need, you may borrow it from our Lending Library. If we don’t have it, and you are selected for the book grant, you will receive an award for the cost of your textbook(s).
You may list up to six textbooks; however, if selected, we cannot guarantee that you will receive funding for all of your books.
Additionally, all textbooks purchased with the book grant must be returned to Undocumented Student Program’s Lending Library at the end of the quarter/course. Failure to return textbooks will result in disqualification for future scholarships and book grants.
The book grant may not be used to purchase digital versions or book rentals.
Deadline: Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.
Undocumented Student Programs (USP) offers an Emergency Grant program up to $500. Qualifying students may only receive an emergency grant from USP one time during the academic year. The emergency grant is for unforeseen emergencies such as medical services, dental services, legal fees, housing crisis, and other emergency expenses as determined by the grant committee. Emergency grants are on a first-come-first-serve basis and will be available until funds exhaust. For non-emergency/expected costs, (such as grad school test, books, etc.) students should apply to the R’DREAM Scholarship or Book Grant during week 1.
