Thanks @billdeblasio for joining @FundforPA and @thenyic to introduce the 2013 #DREAMFellows #cir #dreamers
Today, the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) and the Fund for Public Advocacy held a press conference to introduce the 2013 participants in the DREAM Fellowship Program, a semester-long leadership development and internship program that provides college scholarships to undocumented students who demonstrate exceptional commitment to community engagement. During the semester, the fellows take part in a leadership training program run by the NYIC and hold internships at NYIC’s diverse member organizations, providing them the opportunity to gain hands-on advocacy experience . The fellowship program began in February.
