Here at Central Valley Scholars, we understand the obstacles and discriminations students who are undocumented face both in their communities and education systems. As advocates for students who are undocumented, we have created an Undocumented Scholarship in the Central Valley as an initiative to give students with this identity the opportunity to share their stories. We want students who are undocumented in the Central Valley to understand that they are an important part of our community, and their voices should be heard. We are not looking for the student with the highest academic achievements, nor are we looking for students with impressive resumes; but rather, this scholarship was established to give students who are undocumented in the Central Valley the opportunity to share their story and experience while growing up with documentation status. Use this scholarship to tell us your story, your struggles, and obstacles you have overcame in relation to being someone who is undocumented.
