Jeff Bezos donates $33 million to fund college scholarships for Dreamers

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, are donating $33 million in the form of a scholarship grant to help 1,000 undocumented immigrant high school graduates with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status attend college.

The Bezos grant comes through TheDream.US, a scholarship fund for Dreamers. The organization, which is less than four years old, says this is the largest grant it has ever received. In partnership with more than 70 low-cost colleges in 15 states, TheDream.US offers individual students $33,000 in scholarship aid over four years to help them cover the cost of tuition, fees and books.

"My dad came to the U.S. when he was 16 as part of Operation Pedro Pan," Bezos said in a statement. "He landed in this country alone and unable to speak English. With a lot of grit and determination – and the help of some remarkable organizations in Delaware – my dad became an outstanding citizen, and he continues to give back to the country that he feels blessed him in so many ways. MacKenzie and I are honored to be able to help today’s Dreamers by funding these scholarships."

and what foundation and millions in donations has Jeff Bezos made for our own American Dreamers like black, white and all real American minorities boys and girls Born here in the states that can't go to college because their parents can't afford to send them?

it's obvious! Jeff Berzos and Alt-left Dems hate real American kids who are the real Dreamers!

Kato, I Goggled this.

Federal law does not prohibit states from providing in-state tuition to undocumented students. Currently, at least 17 states have passed legislation allowing undocumented graduates of state high schools to pay in-state tuition for colleges and universities. These states are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

Currently, only about 5-10% of undocumented young people who graduate from high school go on to college, compared with about 75% of their classmates (National Immigration Law Center).

I would think that Bezos gets a nice tax deduction for his generosity but only 1,000 get to benefit from this. You make a point when you ask what about our own.

So....you're going to play politics with a man who wants to give kids a chance to go to college, and you fault him for his choice of kids...my God but your hatred seeps from you. For these kids, America is the only home they've ever known..so yes..they are real minority Americans.

Bezos has not really ramped up his giving yet but he has donated significant money to medical research, science and immigrants. His family (parents) also are philanthropists.

Some of us consider the Dreamers as real American kids and in fact, given their records they may be more so.

The big embarrassment is that it will cost 33 million to get only 1,000 though 4 years at college. Many countries offer free college to all. Many countries offer 4 years at college at a lower cost than the US. The cost of education for our children is a real sore spot for me. My son is now exceeding 150k in student loans as he begins his pursuit of a PhD. To cut the costs he plans to attend a foreign law school where his time in college will be less dollars and less time spent in school than the US. This is not right. Both our banks, student loans, and our colleges are ripping our kids a new one day after day.

This ^^^ poster doesn't know who Dreamers are. They aren't criminals. They have broken no law, although their parents committed a federal misdemeanor by bringing them here without proper documentation. Blind bigotry, nothing more.
