Scholarships for DACA students

I was asked this question, “Are there any scholarships for DACA students?” I went looking.

DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) as defined by the Department of Homeland Security: “On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization.”

I went to and I used the following terms: scholarships for DACA students 2017  . With Bing, notice Ad appears near links that are paid links. Be cautious of the Ad ones. cautious about.
