We are launching a new version of the PC Scholar Report in your PC ISTS Portal. The updated report will include additional data allowing you to better track Scholarship eligibility and renewals.

 

Key Updates:

  • Track which Scholars are eligible to renew their scholarship every year and the status of their renewal form (data available June 9th)
  • Track when Scholars will time out of scholarship eligibility (coming in July)
  • Track whether a Scholar has applied for state aid for the upcoming year, where state aid is available (coming in July)

On Tuesday, June 14 at 2:00 pm EST, we will host a 30-minute workshop to walk you through the new report and answer any questions you may have. We will also provide a 1-page resource for navigating the Reports available on the Portal. Register here.

Scholar Survey 2022

2021-2022 Scholar Survey - Extended to June 22nd

2022 Scholar Survey _1_.png

Thanks to you, we reached 71% of our goal of 3,000 responses. We also heard Scholars need a little more time to complete their Scholar Surveys, so we have extended the deadline to June 22!

 

This year, we will be sharing Survey data from Scholars on your campus back with you. You will be able to see how TheDream.US Scholars engaged on-campus and how they evaluated their experiences at their Partner College this past year. We ask that you continue to encourage Scholars to complete their surveys, alongside their renewals.

 

Please reach out to Hyein.Lee@thedream.us with any questions.  

DACA at 10: Resources

Social Media and Communications Toolkit for Institutions

See the DACA Anniversary Social Media Communications Toolkit for Higher Education for comprehensive, higher-ed focused messaging guidance, including template social media, campus statement language, tips and sample content for writing an op-ed, graphics, and useful statistics, to help support DACA, celebrate the anniversary, and call for Congressional action.  

Beyond DACA: Supporting Students on Campus

As DACA remains uncertain and the majority of undocumented students in higher education do not have access to it, here is a checklist for campuses to support all undocumented students, Beyond DACA: An Updated Checklist for Campuses to Support Undocumented Campus Members.


The purpose of this updated checklist is to ensure that campuses have the tools they need to respond to future developments, keep their resources up to date beyond DACA, and explicitly recognize that many undocumented students are not DACA students. This checklist is intended to help support DACA, former DACA, DACA-eligible, and undocumented students, scholars, faculty, and staff.
