University of California Information on Immigration & DACA
The University of California is deeply concerned that recent federal actions related to immigration and immigration status create a climate of confusion and fear among members of our community, including among undocumented students and those of the Muslim faith.

UC welcomes students, faculty and staff from all backgrounds and nationalities, and believes that everyone in our community deserves to feel safe and respected.

Co-founded by three undocumented youth in the San Francisco Bay Area, Pre-Health Dreamers was formed out of the need for answers in their personal pursuits of higher education at the graduate and medical levels.

Angel, Denisse, and New have paved their own paths throughout college and have leveraged each person’s expertise in skillful advocacy, networking, and community-building to build a community, resource, and forum.

Affordable Colleges Online (ACO)
Many undocumented students don’t think about going to college because of legal or financial concerns or simply because of lack of information. It is true that undocumented students face a number of hurdles when it comes to a college education, but that doesn’t mean it’ s entirely out of reach.


The DreamSF Fellowship
The DreamSF Fellowship is an opportunity for students who are Undocumented, DACAmented, or TPS holders to develop their professional skills, receive a stipend, and support local nonprofits working with immigrant communities in the Bay Area. The fellowship will run from June until mid-December and is open to all Bay Area individuals who meet the criteria. Accepted applicants will be matched with a host organization based in San Francisco.
