Esperanza Education Fund: Scholarships for Immigrant Students

The Esperanza Education Fund awards college scholarships to dozens of promising immigrants, regardless of their status.

The Esperanza Education Fund


Our story

The Esperanza Education Fund is a volunteer-run organization that provides college scholarships and professional mentorship to local immigrant students regardless of national origin, ethnicity, or immigration status.

Thanks to generous gifts from philanthropists, the business community, and people like you, we have awarded $810,000 in scholarships to 88 local immigrant students since 2009.

In May, we’ll name our 10th class of scholars. In 2017, we received nearly 700 scholarship applications, but were only able to award 9 scholarships. In other words, we are only able to award a scholarship to 1.5% of applicants. Now, under the Trump Administration, we face demand like never before.

With your help, we hope to meet this demand. Our goal is to finance the largest class of scholars in Esperanza history.
