Hello Berkeley High School Community,
For many years, the Berkeley High School counselors have been managing a couple of scholarship programs for BHS seniors. One in particular is focused entirely on supporting our undocumented seniors as they head off to college. The Aragon Family Scholarship was created in memory of Raul Aragon from Cal State University Northridge who began supporting our undocumented BHS seniors many years ago. 100% of donations goes directly to undocumented BHS seniors as college scholarships.
Although California does a lot to support undocumented students, these young scholars are not eligible for any federal grants/scholarships/loans. This often leaves them struggling to be able to afford college like their documented peers. The BHS counselors have been raising money ourselves for this scholarship, but our resources are limited and we are never able to award as much money as we would like to our undocumented seniors. I know that many generous community members have been asking how they can help support our EL and our undocumented students, and this is an option that could make a huge difference in the lives of these amazing young people.
If anyone would like to help support these students with scholarship donations, here is the relevant information:
