MALDEF

varies – varies (Deadline: 12/31/2018)

The Latino Legal Voice for Civil Rights in America. This is a resource guide for students and provides information about organizations that offer scholarships. MALDEF is pleased to provide you with this extensive list of scholarships, including many that do not inquire about immigration status or require a valid social security number. The overview of scholarships provided includes website links that you are advised to visit for more complete details as it is not practical to list every requirement of each scholarship. Please read through, or download, the information here and select scholarships that are applicable to you. As a general rule, if an application asks for your social security number and you do not have one yet, leave that space blank but fill out and turn in the otherwise completed application. Many scholarship awards can be processed with just the student’s name and address. If a scholarship specifically requests a SSN, ask if it is possible to submit an ITIN instead. Dishonesty about your legal status or providing a false social security number is a federal offense. MALDEF suggests that you: 1. Contact the organization that offers any scholarship you are interested in and ask if you meet the qualifying criteria to apply for and receive the scholarship. 2. Review other scholarship lists and resources provided at the end of this document. Also, inquire with your guidance counselor at school to learn about scholarship opportunities in your local area. Current college students are familiar with scholarships and can serve as a valuable resource. 3. Beware of scholarship scams. DO NOT pay any organization, company, or individual to help you apply for scholarships, conduct a scholarship search, or provide access to scholarship lists. Some scholarship programs require a minimal application processing fee but should NEVER ask for a higher fee to apply for a scholarship.

MALDEF

varia – varia (Deadline: 12/31/2018)

La Vos legal Latina para derechos civiles en America. Esta es una guia de recursos para estudiantes que provee informacion sobre las organizaciones que ofrecen becas. MALDEF se complace en proveer una lista extensa de becas, incluyendo muchas que no preguntan acerca de su estatus migratorio ni les pide un número válido de seguro social. Este resumen de becas contiene enlaces de sitio web que se les recomienda utilizar para obtener información más detallada ya que no es práctico incluir todos los requisitos de cada beca en esta lista. Por favor lea o descargue la información proveída en esta lista y seleccione las becas que son aplicables a usted. Como regla general, si una aplicación pide su número de seguro social y usted no tiene uno todavía, deje ese espacio en blanco, pero llene y entregue el resto de la solicitud completa. Muchas becas se pueden procesar con solamente el nombre y domicilio del estudiante. Si una beca específicamente solicita un número de seguro social, pregunte si es posible presentar un ITIN en su lugar. Deshonestidad sobre su estatus migratorio o dar un número de seguro social falso es un delito federal. MALDEF sugiere que usted: 1. Contacte las organizaciones que ofrecen las becas que le interesan y pregunte si usted cumple el criterio para aplicar y recibir la beca. 2. Revise otras listas de becas y recursos proveídos al fin de este documento. También pregunte con su consejero en la escuela para aprender más sobre becas en su área local. Estudiantes universitarios actuales están familiarizados con becas y pueden servir como un recurso valioso. 3. Cuidado con las estafas de becas. NO pague a ninguna organización, empresa o individuo para ayudarle a solicitar becas, realizar una búsqueda de becas, o para el acceso a las listas de becas. Algunos programas de becas requieren una mínima tarifa para procesar la aplicación, pero NUNCA deben pedir una tarifa mayor para aplicar.
