Huron University College is offering $60,000 scholarships to students affected by the announcement of the Trump administration to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).
Huron University College, referred to locally as Huron College, is one of the affiliated colleges of the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.
Huron recognizes this is a small gesture in the face of a terrible injustice. University have no way of knowing how many people will take advantage of their offer, but they feel compelled to do whatever they can when they are faced with actions that contradict their guiding principles. Huron sees this scholarship as a meaningful attempt to assist deserving students victimized by a policy and a situation beyond their control.
At Huron, their vision is to Educate Leaders with Heart, and they have embarked on a mission of teaching civic responsibility.
Huron is an institution that cares about the world we live in. This is why they feel it is essential to ensure every student, regardless of race, identity, or background, has an equal opportunity to thrive.
