The Association of Raza Educators (A.R.E.) is determined to provide an education that is equitable to all, regardless of citizenship status. A.R.E. believes that all students deserve an opportunity to attend college without discrimination of any kind. Through its fiscal sponsor, the Raza Education Fund, the Association of Raza Educators will provide undocumented students with an opportunity to realize their dreams of attending college.
Each year A.R.E will award undocumented graduating seniors, continuing college students, and active community members and students with a scholarship. The number of scholarships awarded each year will be determined by the amount raised and/or donated to the Raza Education Fund. The application deadline is March 14; and the maximum award amount is $5,000.
