Dreamers’ Scholarships Presentation

Our March Special Collection was for our own “Dreamers Scholarship”, which goes to California State University Long Beach undocumented students who qualify under AB540 (considered as state residents). Funds collected go directly to the students. The Dreamers scholarship committee will present the UUCLB Dreamers Scholarship to the recipients at the June 3 10:00 am service.


Mauro writes:


I do not have words to express my sincere gratitude to the Dreamers Scholarship Staff, but most importantly to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Long Beach, but to say THANK YOU. This scholarship, as a collective contribution from this institution, would allow me to continue advancing my dreams and keeping them alive. It will be my honor and pleasure to meet you all at the Sunday service.

Again, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, and I cannot wait to meet you all.

And Sheila says:

I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and support. As I am moving forward in my master program and closer to graduating I am also preparing to apply for a Ph.D. in gerontology at USC. Your support will help me to continue to pursue higher education. I cannot express how appreciative I am for the support. I look forward to meeting you.

Please join the committee on June 3 to congratulate these outstanding scholars!
