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.

Student Loan Debt Forgiveness for U.S. Military Veterans

February 4, 2020

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

The U.S. Department of Education plans to forgive $1.3 billion in outstanding student loan debt for roughly 25,000 disabled U.S. military veterans, beginning in July. Until now, the Department of Education had required veterans to formally apply for student loan forgiveness - having them complete "unnecessary paperwork to secure relief from their student loans, even after the Department of Veterans Affairs had found that a veteran met the legal requirements for disability-related loan forgiveness." In 2018, over 30,000 totally and permanently disabled veterans eligible for student loan forgiveness had not completed the necessary paperwork; a majority of which had defaulted on their student loans.
