Feb. 25, 2019 LA GRANDE, Ore. – Eastern Oregon University’s ongoing partnership with TheDream.US offers scholarship funding for qualified students. The renewable award covers tuition and fees up to a maximum of $29,000 toward a bachelor’s degree at EOU.
Since the beginning of the partnership in 2017, 10 students have been awarded funds that enabled them to attend EOU. A majority of the recipients are from eastern Oregon.
“EOU is committed to providing access and opportunity to an increasingly diverse population in the state of Oregon,” said EOU President Tom Insko. “Our partnership with TheDream.US to offer the National Scholarship provides vital resources to high achieving undocumented students that opens a pathway to new possibilities through college degree attainment.”
TheDream.US is the country’s largest college access and success program for DREAMers – undocumented immigrant students who have lived and attended school in the U.S. since they were children. The national scholarship is open to first-time college students or community college graduates who meet the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration eligibility criteria.
“We are one of two universities in the state to provide this opportunity,” said Bennie Moses-Mesubed, EOU’s Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion Director. “Our main focus is recruiting and supporting Oregon DREAMers to pursue a college education. This is a great opportunity for EOU to be part of making college a reality for many outstanding students.”
The deadline to receive funding in fall 2019 is Feb. 28. Representatives at EOU are available to assist students interested in applying and provide information to high school and college advisors.
