The Penn for Immigrant Rights Scholarship was established in 2013 to provide funding for Philadelphia college-bound high school students regardless of their immigration status.
With this initiative, Penn for Immigrants Rights (PIR) hopes to engage the Pennsylvania community in conversations regarding equal access to higher education and equal opportunities for immigrant students regardless of their current immigration status. Our priority is to empower undocumented students and immigrant communities.
This $500 scholarship will be granted to select Philadelphia students following an application process evaluated by the Scholarship Committee of Penn for Immigrant Rights. PIR hopes this scholarship fund may also help undocumented students, otherwise ineligible for most types of financial assistance towards education.
One of Penn for Immigrant Rights’ most important initiatives is providing scholarships for Philadelphia high school students of all immigrant backgrounds as they prepare to enter college. Please donate to help us continue helping Philadelphia immigrant youth fund their college educations.
