ABOUT DSF: Our DREAM Scholarship Fund (DSF) was founded by Korean American youth who tirelessly campaigned for passage of the DREAM Act, legislation that would provide a pathway to legalization for eligible immigrant students in the United States who attend college. While we will continue working towards the immediate passage of the DREAM Act, we also started to look at other barriers to higher education. One such barrier is that financially needy students are less inclined to pursue higher education because of the costs. Thus, the DREAM Scholarship Fund was established and is operated under the beliefs that education is a human right and that education is key to America’s prosperity.
DSF is funded entirely by the organizing efforts of our affiliate youth groups, KRCC’s Fighting Youth Shouting out for Humanity (FYSH) and KRC’s Alliance of Korean American Students in Action (AKASIA), and from the generous support of community members like you!
