A.R.E. SCHOLARSHIP: Last week to submit Applications!

"A deepened consciousness of their situation leads people to apprehend that situation as an historical reality susceptible to transformation." — Paulo Freire

privatization = segregation, immigrant rights = workers rightsEducation is a Basic Human Right!

The Association of Raza Educators, A.R.E., believes that education is a human right and that all people, regardless of citizenship status, should have the right to an education. As educators, we often see some of the most deserving students denied that right because they are ineligible for financial aid.

Through its fiscal sponsor, the Raza Education Fund, the Association of Raza Educators will provide undocumented students with an opportunity to realize their dreams of attending college. Each year A.R.E will award undocumented graduating seniors and continuing college students with a scholarship. The number of scholarships awarded each year will be determined by the amount raised and/or donated to the Raza Education Fund.

Scholarship recipients are selected based on their commitment to fighting for social justice. Students are required to turn in an application, and demonstrate how they are actively involved in their community. Scholarship recipients are expected to further the goals of A.R.E.

Deadline: March 1, 2010
