Undocumented immigrants have the opportunity to obtain scholarships with an app that recommends different scholarships available to students who cannot pay for college easily.
DREAMer’s Roadmap is an app dedicated to provide information and lead undocumented students to getting scholarships and not be discouraged to attend college.
The app was founded by Sarahi Espinoza Salamanca who was also an undocumented student and had trouble finding ways to afford going to college.
Salamanca founded DREAMer’s Roadmap to help those in need just as she once was.
The app is designed to help undocumented students easily search and find suitable scholarships for them.
The app is free to use and to make an account. Users are also able to browse around the app without even making an account.
They must however, make one to filter scholarships that tailor towards them. Some examples include scholarship rewards, availability in their state or nationwide, education level, and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or non-DACA students.
Users are also able to save scholarships, receive notifications, due dates and suggest different scholarships for the app that can also benefit others.
Another feature is tips. These offer advice and different articles of news stories that will help users learn how to get scholarships and keep up to date with updates revolving around them.
DREAMer’s Roadmap is available on IOS and Android. It has over 10,000 downloads on Google Play alone.
Scholarships and more information about the company and app is available at dreamersroadmap.com.
