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.
As an immigrant and refugee, I believe that helping those who come to the United States in search of a better life and prosperity is important. These people are the future of our country and are often in positions where they cannot afford to pay for their tuition outright.
To contribute to a better future for immigrant students, the Hasanovic American Dream Scholarship will support immigrant students that have a passion for learning and want to create a better life for themselves, their future families, and contribute positively to our society.
This scholarship is open to all first and second-generation immigrant students in any field of study. To apply, please write about what the American Dream means to you and how you hope to use your college degree to achieve your view of the American Dream.
