TheDream.Us, a nonprofit working toward college access for undocumented immigrants, said the donation from Bezos and his wife MacKenzie is the largest in the organization's history and will fund 1,000 scholarships.
"MacKenzie and I are honored to be able to help today's Dreamers by funding these scholarships", he added.
As the "Dreamers" as they're known, are illegal immigrants, they are not eligible to receive financial aid from the federal government, TheDream.US aims to offer these students up to $33,000 in financial aid spread over four years of college study. 2,850 students are now enrolled in college under the program, according to the foundation.
The donation comes as legislators and the White House struggle to come up with a deal to address the status of the young undocumented immigrants who could face deportation when DACA winds down, as ordered in September by President Trump, in March.
Dreamers, 800,000 of whom have received DACA status since 2012, face a variety of obstacles to college attendance.
TheDream.US partners with more than 70 low-priced colleges in 15 states.
Support from the tech community has been a great boon to TheDream.US, according to Marshall. We would invite anyone who questions the value of Dreamers to please come meet some of our students. It is a shot in the arm for Dreamer students at a time when some are questioning whether they should be in the United States at all.
