Dear Colleagues and Friends of UC Davis:
As you may know, approximately 98,000 Undocumented students graduate nationally each year from high school but are presently ineligible for federal financial aid to attend college. Of these high school graduates, approximately 27 percent live in California (Migration Policy Institute, 2019). Many of these high achieving students, including high school valedictorians, have been unable to fulfill their educational dreams and aspirations due to a lack of financial support.
A gift, in any amount, will help us turn dreams into reality as more eligible students look towards a UC Davis education. This fund has been established to aid high-achieving AB540 and Undocumented students in their dream.
- Aggie DREAM Fund
The Aggie Dream Fund provides financial support for Undocumented or AB540 undergraduate & graduate students to help them achieve their degrees. The priority use of the fund is to provide general program support for the AB540 & Undocumented Student Center as well as emergency funding support for additional student expenses not covered by scholarships or financial aid awards including but not limited to books, lab fees, educational supplies, clothing, and transportation.
