If you are an international/undocumented student, then you know firsthand how difficult it is to find scholarships and internships. Everywhere you see "US citizens only" and if non-citizens are included, then it only goes as far as to include permanent residents. Due to popular demand, we have searched the internet for the most inclusive opportunities out there. A lot of these scholarships aren't just for internationals, but citizens too! We hope to offer more lists, but only if this proves helpful to you all.
