As you may know, earlier this month the Mission Asset Fund (MAF) announced a scholarship fund to help young immigrants pay for the $495 DACA renewal fee. Today, the fund is announcing it has now tripled in size to reach $3,000,000--enough to help 6,000 Dreamers renew their DACA permits for two more years. To date, 4,000 scholarships have already been issued, with 2,000 scholarships still available--making this DACA renewal fund the largest of its kind in the nation. It is also important to note, close to 900 of the applications received so far are from California community college students.
