2017 Scholarship Opportunities
Scholarships Sponsored by the MC Law Group
The two $500 MC Law Group Scholarships were created this year for students who are Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and are attending either undergraduate or graduate school.
There are two $500 scholarships available:
- For a high school student on DACA who is attending college in any major; and
- For a high school or college student on DACA who is attending or planning to attend law school.
The founder of these scholarships at the MC Law Group strongly believes in immigrating to the United States to improve their quality of life by getting a high-quality education. They are very pleased to offer these two DACA scholarships to high achieving individuals who want to live the American Dream through higher education.
