Every year, {m}aganda magazine provides one AB540 eligible / undocumented student at UC Berkeley with a $500 scholarship for the upcoming school year.

This scholarship is a response to the growing financial need of AB 540 students and the immigrant-related issues in our communities. With this, we hope to not only provide resources and support for AB 540 students, but to encourage them to continue persevering and inspiring others with their strength, tenacity, and courage.

Our scholarship is primarily funded by our annual Community Project, an arts-based event planned by {m}aganda magazine’s staff and interns. All proceeds from Community Project go directly to the scholarship.

Applications for Fall 2015 AB540 Scholarship are now open. Please view the application here.*
Deadline: Friday, May 1, 11:59pm.  EXTENDED DEADLINE: Saturday, May 9, 11:59pm.

*If you do not meet the Eligibility requirements for the AB 540 scholarship, but you are still interested in applying, please contact Nicole Arca at maganda.eic@gmail.com with your questions / concerns.
