Establishing a mechanism that will provide financial assistance to these DACA students. 

Project: “Funding the Dream”

For my Puksta Project, I want to establish a mechanism that will provide financial assistance to these DACA students.

I will need to find a vehicle/mechanism that complies with any rules and regulations of governing bodies. This means the vehicle will allow for fundraising, funds management, and fund disbursement while staying within the restrictions established by governing bodies such as educational institutions.

Inspiration: “Catch 22; I want to go to college but I need to spend a major part of my time at work because I need to pay for school out-of-pocket.” I want DACA students to focus on their school work.

Future Plans for Project: The projected results will allow for financial assistance to those DACA beneficiaries whose Employment Authorization Document expires [From] March 6, 2018.
