Sociology Class Moves Forward on DREAM Scholarship at NEIU

This semester, Sonia Oliva’s FYE class (SOC 109-Immigation and Migration in Chicago) is working on establishing a DREAM scholarship for undocumented youth at NEIU (NEIU DREAM). Several Sociology majors (Julia Gutierrez and Elizabeth Cervantes) along with faculty in Education (Dr. Gabriel Cortez) have also joined in on this effort. Although this project is just in the beginning stages, we have managed to accomplish several tasks including: writing a letter to the Independent; meeting with President Hahs, garnering support from the Admissions and Records Office and the Scholarship office, establishing an email account and we’ve even received a $1,000 donation from an external donor. We have a lot of work ahead of us and many great ideas. We are very excited to pioneer this scholarship.

Please look out for announcements pertaining to our future events, fundraisers, meetings etc.
