We Are The Dream Grant Program
MTV and Get Schooled want to help your high school, college or community-based organization support the college goals of undocumented students in your community.
What kind of project could we fund? Here are some ideas:
1. Help put together a local fundraiser to support undocumented students in your community (e.g. materials for a car wash, money to buy items for a bake sale, etc.)
2. Have an assembly y raise awareness of how undocumented students can succeed in college
3. Micro-grants for undocumented students in your community to pay for books or transportation, etc.
We encourage you to explore the resources on our site including “Creating a Welcoming Environment for Undocumented Students” and “6 Ways Students Can Support Dreamers” before you complete the application.
Any high school or college student or teacher as well as any staff member of a community based organization (e.g. a Boys & Girls Club, Boy Scout or Girl Scout Troop, etc. ) are welcome to apply. Applicants must provide a reference that will vouch for the integrity of the applicant and the willingness of the organization to support the idea.
We will fund up to 20 grants ranging from $250 – $1,000. Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis. The grant program will be closed on March 30, 2018.
