Although this is not necessarily a college prep fellowship, it is a great opportunity. Dream Summer fellows are placed within social justice-based organizations and work closely with their host organization to incorporate and strengthen the role of immigrant issues alongside the organization’s social justice work. Over the summer, fellows engage and lead social justice efforts by aligning the call for immigrant rights issues alongside the unique challenges of queer and transgender communities; Asian and Pacific Islander communities; Black immigrant communities; the ongoing mass incarceration and criminalization of people of color; worker rights; and health care access for all.
Dream Summer fellows receive a $5,000 fellowship award for their participation in the program, leadership and professional development training, and become part of a national alumni network of over 650 immigrant rights leaders.
The fellowship is open to immigrant youth across the country, Applicants must be 18 or older by June 18, 2020 in order to apply. Applicants also do not have to be DACA eligible or a DACA recipient in order to apply.
Deadline to apply is February 14, 2020.
