5th annual dream scholarship fund

The National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC) and its affiliates the Korean American Resource & Cultural Center (KRCC) in Chicago and the Korean Resource Center (KRC) in Los Angeles have announced the launch of the fifth annual DREAM Scholarship Fund program for Asian American and Pacific Islander students.

The scholarship program will enable young people to continue with their education on the collegiate level. Based on financial need, leadership and service to local communities, a total of eight $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to students in California, Illinois and nationwide. Here's some more information about the scholarship:
For years, Korean American youth tirelessly campaigned for the passage of the DREAM Act - tailored legislation that would provide a path to legalization for eligible immigrant students who grew up in the United States if they attend college. While we will continue working towards the immediate passage of the DREAM Act, we also started to look at other barriers to higher education. One such barrier is that financially needy students are less inclined to pursue higher education because of the costs. Thus, the DREAM Scholarship Fund was established and is operated under the beliefs that education is a human right and that education is key to America's prosperity.
The application deadline is May 18. To download the application form, donate to the scholarship fund, or for more information, go to the NAKASEC website.
