Fund a scholarship to help four immigrant workers in the Georgetown community achieve U.S. legal status and citizenship.

Applying for U.S. citizenship costs $720, green card renewal costs $450, and classes and tutoring to prepare for applying can cost much more. These financial barriers make applying for citizenship inaccessible to many of the people who single-handedly keep our university functioning. Through a partnership with the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor (which will screen and interview candidates) and the D.C. Schools Project (which will provide tutoring for scholarship recipients), we hope to subsidize the citizenship process and urgent immigration-related needs for four eligible  workers in order to thank some incredibly important members of our Hoya family.
