The Pell Project

Providing scholarships for college-bound undocumented students




The Pell Project exists because undocumented, college-bound students do not have access to federal financial aid. 
We provide undocumented students with a significant private scholarship, equivalent to the US Pell Grant to break down economic barriers to college.


Read stories and personal essays from undocumented high school graduates on the challenges they've faced on their paths to college and their dreams for what lies ahead.




Help us raise
