Learn and Earn with College Track

We know financing college presents a major barrier to earning a college degree.

Our Financial Planning & Resources Program is geared towards assisting all scholars, including DREAMers, with various resources that foster a sense of ownership for the financial demands linked to the college-going experience. From as early as their freshman year in high school to the time scholars enroll in college, they are making informed decisions about their financial future with College Track’s partnership.


College Track provides invaluable support for our Dreamers and DACA recipients. Examples of financial resources available to Dreamers include:

  • Access to need- and merit-based scholarships specifically for Dreamers and DACA recipients
  • Scholarships to cover DACA application and renewal fees
  • Free immigration screenings at local College Track centers and access to free or low-cost legal aid

To learn more, please reach out to Dreamer Program Manager, Darwin Velasquez at dvelasquez@collegetrack.org .


College Track students who face unforeseen circumstances and are currently enrolled in a two or four-year institution may apply for emergency funding.

To learn more about emergency funding and determine your eligibility, please reach out to your designated College Thrive Coach.
