    DreamActivist Scholarship

    DreamActivist Scholarships For Undocumented Students offers scholarship opportunities for illegal immigrant minors to receive financial assistance to attend college in the U.S. It allows immigrant students without papers to qualify for a college scholarship.

    The scholarships reflect many of the ideals proposed in the Dream Act, a proposed federal bill on immigration reform that would grant deferment to immigrants who came into the country as children and allow them to remain legally to complete their education as undocumented students.

    Although the DREAM Act has not yet been passed, what President Obama did sign into law by executive order was the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The program authorizes the removal of the illegal status of alien students and gives them a reprieve to remain in the country for education purposes. To qualify, students must be under the age of 35, residents of the U.S. for at least five years, have a high school diploma and have entered the U.S. at age 15 or younger. Students would then have six years in which to complete their education at a U.S. college or university and earn their degree.

    Many states have passed their own state legislation allowing students to attend college and receive financial aid funded by taxpayer money and private scholarship support. Two of those states include Maryland and California. California's DREAM Act was announced January 1 of 2013. Maryland passed a similar act in November.

    DreamActivist.org is a communication portal for migrant students supporting the DREAM Act and other forms of immigration reform legislation. The social media website is a resource network for migrant students which shares information on scholarships for undocumented students, immigration issues, and other resources.

    The deadline for this scholarship VARIES , and the award amount VARIES.

    Innovation in Education Scholarship

    At LA Tutors, we believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram that helps us understand the world better; and still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver.

    One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation brings together in unique ways our technical skills and our hopes for a better world.

    It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and for life.

    We at LA Tutors are passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria.

    NerdScholar

    We built our scholarship tool out of frustration with other tools that manipulate students with advertisements, sell personal information, and don't always have the most up to date information, which makes students lose time when applying.

    A little more background on our tool: it has no advertisements or commercial listings. In fact, non of NerdScholar's tools generate any revenue because we are supported by our parent company (NerdWallet) and through grants, such as the funding we recently received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

    4. 4. Has there been a time in your life when you’ve felt guided by an entrepreneurial spirit? Did you act on it and take the initiative to achieve your goal? Explain.
