Zuckerberg and Wife Donate USD 5 Million for Immigrants’ Education

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are to donate USD 5 million TheDream.US, a fund which finances the education of undocumented immigrants. With this donation hundreds of students will be able to receive higher education across the United States. In a post written on Facebook, Zuckerberg said that it must not be forgotten that America was founded as a nation of immigrants.

“We ought to welcome smart and hardworking young people from every nation, and to help everyone in our society achieve their full potential. If we help more young immigrants climb the ladder to new opportunities, then our country will make greater progress,” Zuckerberg wrote.

His donation will enable as many as 400 immigrants to attend college in the San Francisco Bay Area. Zuckerberg said he wishes that the money will help to these young people pursue meaningful careers.

The foundation aims at providing each student with USD 25,000 if they attend four-year colleges, and up to USD 12,500 for those pursuing associates degrees. Students who have the right to receive the scholarship have to be able to stay in the United States under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA).
