Support the "A Dream Decided" Scholarship Giving Circle to Benefit Undocumented Counselors-in-Training
Created by: Dipre, Kirsis

$ 9,005.00
Goal$ 8,000.00


Seventy years ago, famed poet Langston Hughes wrote the poem "Harlem." The first line of the poem asked, "What happens to a dream deferred?" For too many years, undocumented individuals in our country have had to defer their dreams, and this scholarship hopes to change that.


The A Dream Decided (ADD) Scholarship was created to support the dreams of undocumented graduate-level counselors-in-training. The ADD Scholarship hopes to encourage undocumented counselors-in-training to pursue their decided dream of becoming a counselor by offering some financial assistance during their educational journey. There are over 400,000 undocumented students in higher education who are pursuing their dreams despite the obstacles that come from their documentation status, including a lack of access to federal aid. We want to help support these students by easing the financial burden that comes with graduate school.


The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) and the NBCC Foundation have supported many individuals in achieving their personal, academic, and career goals. These organizations believe in supporting underserved populations, and they have supported our efforts in doing the same. For this reason, we have decided to begin a giving circle dedicated to undocumented graduate students in counselor education programs.

Please consider a donation to support a scholarship for an undocumented or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) graduate student in a counselor education program. Every dollar donated to the ADD Scholarship Giving Circle will go directly to fund this scholarship. The goal is to raise $8,000 to provide one fully funded scholarship through the NBCC Foundation.
