UCLA Labor Center Dream Summer Program

Application Deadline:  March 10, 2017

Dream Summer is a national fellowship program established by the UCLA Dream Resource Center. The program has provided over 560 fellowship opportunities to immigrant youth and allies throughout the nation. Dream Summer participants have engaged in social justice work and movement building by addressing the intersections of immigrant rights issues with queer and transgender communities, the Asian Pacific Islander community, mass incarceration and deportations perpetuated by the criminalization of people of color, and health care access for all.

Participants are placed in social justice organizations for 10 weeks for additional training. Dream Summer fellows work closely with their host organization to incorporate and strengthen the inclusion of undocumented immigrant issues within the organization’s social justice work. Dream Summer participants receive a $5,000 fellowship for their participation in the program, as well as travel expenses related to attending the program orientation in Los Angeles.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and the program will consider applicants beyond 28 years of age only in exceptional circumstances. Enrollment in an educational degree program is not required. The program does not discriminate based on immigration status and is open to undocumented individuals.
