Help us fund a scholarship to help immigrant workers in the Georgetown community obtain U.S. citizenship or renew their immigration status. SaxaFund is partnering with the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor, the Corp, and the Georgetown University SIPS Fund to raise every dollar we can for this important cause!
Applying for U.S. citizenship costs $725, renewal of U.S. permanent residency costs $540, applying for work permits costs $495, 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 screens and interviews candidates) and the D.C. Schools Project (which provides tutoring for scholarship recipients), we hope to subsidize the citizenship process and urgent immigration-related needs for eligible workers in order to thank some incredibly important members of our Hoya family.
