MUST KNOW
HR 6, the American Dream and Promise Act, Passed in the House of Representatives
On June 4th, Congress passed HR 6, the American Dream and Promise Act in the House of Representatives. We know many Scholars, allies, and our PCs have questions on what is next. This act would replace DREAMers’ current uncertainty with permanent citizenship and a chance to fully contribute to the country they call home. While this is an exciting win for the immigrant community, the process for this bill to become law will be an uphill battle. The Senate will have to take on the bill, vote on it, and then the President would also have to sign it.
 
One key thing to remember is that the passage of this bill in the House of Representatives does not mean this bill is a law. Please be aware of potential scammers and misinformation that may spread on this legislation.
New Scholar Welcome - August 1st at 2 pm EST
We encourage you to reserve rooms on your campus now to bring your new Scholars together for our Aug 1st New Scholar Welcome, live from New York City at 2:00 pm EST.

Note: The New Scholar Welcome will not be an orientation to our Scholarship policies as it has been in the past. This year, we sent New Scholars their Scholarship Program Guide via DocuSign to read and sign. The purpose of the New Scholar Welcome is to foster a sense of community among Scholars, and inspire them to successfully start their college journey while taking care of their well-being.
