We got another goodie sent to us via e-mail, the text of it can be read below.Â This one is a all the more better because it is not really a scholarship, more of a stipend for those of you who are working with a non-profit in California.
It requires you at least be working 30 hours a week with a non-profit, the catch – in a good way – however is that you can also qualify if you are volunteering.Â You wonder, how the heck is that a good catch?Â Well hear us out, how about you find a non-profit, work with them on the Dream Act and get a stipend for the work you do!?Â Getting paid for Dream Act work, that is an amazing thing!

The recipient must also stay at their place of employment for the duration of the calendar year. Recipients who leave before the end of the calendar year will be required to return a proportional amount of the stipend.
