For years, Korean American youth tirelessly campaigned for the passage of the DREAM Act - tailored legislation that would provide a path to legalization for eligible immigrant students who grew up in the United States if they 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 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.
