Support for All Students 

The resources below can help you with advocacy, financial aid assistance, and eligibility questions.

If you are a student who identifies as AB 540/DACA/Undocumented and is pursuing a college education, check out UCR's Undocumented Student Programs (USP) and connect with their program coordinator.

UC Immigrant Legal Services provides free DACA renewal assistance to UC students and their immediate family members. You should assess whether it makes sense for you to apply as soon as possible. There is no application deadline, but the U.S. government publicized that it will appeal the DACA court decision. The renewal program may be available indefinitely or it could be terminated, depending on how the case proceeds in the courts. To schedule an appointment with UC Immigrant Legal Service Center, contact Ana Coria from your UCR email to learn more about immigration legal services.

  • MEChA Alumni Scholarship

    The MEChA Alumni Association has established a scholarship fund to recognize the academic and community achievement of students who promote “Chicanismo,” a concept that “integrates self-awareness with cultural identity [and includes all] those who acknowledge and work toward the betterment of La Raza.”

    The MEChA Alumni Association awards five scholarships of $500 each to multiple types of students including high school and transfer students planning on attending UCR, those currently enrolled at UCR, and different types of students who identify as undocumented, DACAmented, or AB540. Each applicant must meet specific GPA and other requirements. Please email Estella Acuna for more details.
