SOS Migrant Student Scholarship

$1,000

May 27, 2020

Awards Available: 1

  • Scholarship Description
  • Students of Salaam (SOS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and national initiative that works to the success of migrants and their local communities through education, mentorship and cultural exchange. Students of Salaam (SOS) will host a nation-wide scholarship prize for 1 student of migrant background attending a not-for-profit 2 or 4 year accredited post-secondary institution. Students who are not US citizens are prevented from accessing federal aid for post-secondary study. Some states have enacted policies that enable such students to access state aid. However, this alone does not provide enough funding to provide students with the financial means to complete their post-secondary education (e.g. university or community college). Our hope is to grow a scholarship (sans citizenship requirements) with donations and grants in hopes of fully funding a student’s post-secondary education. You do not have to be a US citizen or legal permanent resident to apply. In the inaugural year of the scholarship, the recipient will receive $1,000 and mentorship by SOS’s diverse leadership community. The application consists of a few background questions and a brief essay. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

Gap Year for National Service as a College Graduation Requirement?

January 13, 2020

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

Should students be required to and serve their nation either before or during college? Pete Buttigieg thinks so, as he has rolled out a $20-billion proposal to enlist young people in national service after high school in order to produce "civically informed and dedicated Americans."
