    WiseGeek Recent Immigrants Scholarship

    The WiseGeek Recent Immigrants Scholarship is a $500 scholarship for students who have immigrated to the United States on or after January 1, 2010.

    About the Scholarship
    America is home to many immigrants who fuel our nation’s growth and development. In 2018, more than 63% of foreign-born adults were employed compared to about 60% of native adults, among them brilliant thinkers, inventors, innovators, and incredibly hard-working individuals. Despite this, immigrants are often targeted or stigmatized, creating a divide between those born abroad and those born in the country. To remove societal barriers and provide immigrants with equal means to succeed, there must be continuous discussion and distinct opportunities for immigrants all over the country. WiseGeek Recent Immigrants Scholarship will support a recent immigrant who has big aspirations for their future in the United States.
