Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, have donated a $33 million scholarship grant to TheDream.US, which is the nation’s largest scholarship program for “Dreamers.”
TheDream.Us nonprofit said a $33 million donation from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie is the largest in the organization’s history and will fund 1,000 scholarships.
In September 2017, Bezos signed an open letter alongside nearly 400 U.S. executives urging President Donald Trump to continue to extend protections for the childhood immigrants.
The president ended DACA protections in September, but has faced court challenges in the months since.
TheDream.US, works to help thousands of DREAMers graduate from college with career-ready degrees. DREAMers are immigrant youth who arrived in the United States at a very young age without documentation.
