SMC Foundation Stands with Undocumented Students

Santa Monica College Foundation has established a scholarship fund to provide immediate assistance to SMC's students who are undocumented and are faced with an unforeseen cost to attend college, such as the advanced financial burden to re-apply for DACA. The application fee is $505 per student. With the Trump Administration's announcement to end DACA, the reapplication process was fast-tracked, placing an unreasonable financial burden on our students.

Please consider a gift to this timely and most important initiative. 100% of the proceeds will directly benefit SMC Undocumented Students.
