Event line

Many scholarship opportunities do not require an SSN# or AB540/SB68 eligibility. UndocuSpartans are invited to sign up for a two-part workshop series where we’ll introduce resources, tips, and actionable steps to apply for scholarships. This virtual workshop series is open to current and formerly undocumented students.

This workshop is presented by Maria Revuelta (she/her), a current SJSU graduate student working on her MA in English with a certificate in Professional and Technical Writing.

UndocuSpartan Scholarship Workshop Schedule

Identifying Scholarships Year Round

Thursday, November 10th, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PT

In this workshop, students will become familiar with undocu-friendly
scholarship search engines and the resources available to help put
together a strong application. Students will walk away from this
workshop having identified at least one scholarship they can apply for
over the Winter.

Preparing Your Personal Statement

Thursday, December 1st, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PT

Writing a personal statement can be intimidating, especially when one is
not sure about how much to disclose about one's immigration status. In
this workshop, we will tackle those questions and identify strategies to
tackle a personal statement from the lens of an undocuscholar.
