DRC Scholarship

We are proud to offer a yearly scholarship to undocumented students to support the pursuit of their educational goals. The DRC scholarship awards $500 to AB540/AB2000/SB68 students who qualify for in-state tuition, and $1,000 to non-AB540/AB2000/SB68 students who do not qualify for in-state tuition.
