Nationwide, only about 3% of undocumented students complete college, mainly because of the cost. Created by a group of teachers, the Unafraid Scholarship supports immigrant students from Boston Public Schools who have been accepted to college but are not eligible for federal financial aid.
Scholarship applications are submitted after students have been accepted and received their financial aid package. As part of the application, students create a financial plan for getting through college. Applications are reviewed by Boston teachers, and applicants will have the opportunity to attend an application clinic with teachers to help them complete the application.
The Unafraid Scholarship builds on the success of a scholarship set up at Fenway High School, where 11 students have been awarded scholarships in the past four years. Eight are still in college, and one just graduated.
