LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — An organization is looking for DACA students who are interested in furthering their education, but are strapped for cash.

“TheDream.US” is accepting applications for their national scholarship, which awards up to $16,000 for an associate’s degree and $33,000 for a bachelor’s degree.
