2019 Mexican American Dream Scholarship Awards Ceremony


Since 2008, COFEM and its affiliated federations, as well as sponsoring partners, have come together to provide scholarships to outstanding and talented students. The Mexican American Dream Scholarship is a unique program that has helped hundreds of students to complete their higher education.

In recent years, the program has set aside over $400,000 for students who are immigrants, sons and daughters of immigrants, and DACA students pursuing a college degree.

Our immigrant communities have faced challenges and unprecedented attacks that have left them in a state of uncertainty and fear.  Education is a way to counter these attacks and continue advancing and empowering our families.  With COFEM's scholarship, the support of partners, sponsors, their families and community these students will continue to advance and crystallize their dream of a higher education.
