If someone ever told you that you are not allowed to get any scholarships because you are undocumented, they lied!  While it is true that you are not allowed to get government money for your education through FAFSA, you definitely can get private scholarships. There are thousands of private scholarships out there that you can apply for.

Here is one of the best resources for scholarships for undocumented students by MALDEF. (Keep in mind that scholarships are on annual cycles, so keep an eye out for deadlines and if an old scholarship from last year is now open again this year).
