Cabrini University First in PA
to Partner with The Dream.US
In an email to the Cabrini University community, President Donald B. Taylor announced:
Cabrini University has been selected as the first school in Pennsylvania to partner with TheDream.US to provide scholarships for the Commonwealth’s undocumented immigrant youth as they achieve their dreams in higher education.
In selecting Cabrini, TheDream.US noted our mission as a Catholic institution with a long standing commitment to helping the underserved and serving the social justice charism of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The nonprofit also admired the work of Cabrini’s Center on Immigration, which advocates on a local and national level on behalf of immigrants, and has provided pro bono legal assistance for students seeking citizenship or facing deportation.
Our namesake St. Frances Xavier Cabrini was herself an immigrant, and is the Patron Saint of Immigrants, so it is fitting that the University aid Pennsylvania DREAMers in pursuing their college aspirations.
.US, the nation’s largest college access and success program for DREAMers, provides scholarships which include tuition, fees, books, and supplies of up to $37,000 for first-time college students or up to $31,000 for community college graduates to earn a bachelor’s degree. These students attend over 70 partner colleges in 21 states and Washington, DC.
We look forward to welcoming applications from DREAMers for the 2022-23 academic year. To apply for the scholarship, applicants must have DACA or TPS authorization, or have come to the country before November 1, 2016 (before the age of 16), and otherwise meet the DACA eligibility criteria.
We are thrilled to support the mission of the Office of Mission, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Student Engagement, as it continues to create an atmosphere of belonging and support for all students. ~ Cabrini University email communication
