Regardless of which college or university you are interested in attending, you should speak with the scholarship office. Many colleges offer scholarships and some tuition waivers without regard to immigration status. You should directly contact the organization that offers those specific scholarships and ask if you meet the criteria to apply.

MALDEF (Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund) compiles a listing of scholarships for ALL Students regardless of immigration status. This is an extensive list of scholarships that may not inquire about immigration status or require a valid social security number to redeem the award. It is suggested that you look through the scholarship list and select scholarships that are applicable to you. As a general rule, if an application asks for your social security number and you do not have one yet, leave that space blank but fill out and turn in the application. Lying about your legal status or providing a false social security is a federal offense. Learn more at: www.maldef.org/leadership/scholarships/index.html
