One U Thriving


Ongoing by Dream Center

Dreamer Support Fund

Implemented November 2016

The Dreamer Support Fund is designed to support undocumented students (with and without DACA) at the University of Utah. Donations contribute to scholarships, emergency support, and expanding access to opportunities. This fund is managed by the Dream Center. We are proud supporters of undocumented students and through our established relationships, programming, and supportive role, we are effectively positioned to deploy these funds to immediately impact students.

November 2016

As was laid out in President Pershing’s letter from November 17, 2016, a DREAMers Scholarship Fund will be established.

September 2017

President Pershing released a second letter of support for Dreamers in their pursuit of education and encouraged the community to contribute to the Dreamer Support Fund. University leaders echoed President Pershing’s statement saying that a diverse community is a core value of the University of Utah. Our message to DACA students is plain and simple: We stand with you and you are welcome here.
