Pupusas for Education is a non-profit committed to supporting undocumented students pursuing higher education. Through last dollar scholarships, we hope to support undocumented students through the financial barriers that exist which impede them from attending college. We aim to address the opportunity gap undocumented students may experience through providing mentorship, financial aid and guidance so they can successfully complete college.
Our scholarship will be awarded annually to two high school seniors who will graduate in the spring semester and plan to enroll in a 2-year or 4-year institution in the fall. The recipients of the scholarship will receive $1,000 per year for the duration of their program (contingent upon meeting yearly eligibility requirements).

The Light on the Hill Society Scholarship effort began during the 2005 UNC Black Alumni Reunion. Organizers challenges alumni to initially contribute $1,952 each - representing the 1952 class year of Harvey Beech, Carolina's first African-American graduate - to become founding members of the scholarship fund.
For more than 13 years, Carolina alumni and friends have annually made tax-deductible gifts to the fund, ranging from a few dollars to several thousand, the largest being a $350,000 gift from NFL star Julius Peppers '02.
The Light on the Hill Society Scholarship will award ten (10) scholarships to African-American students who will enroll at UNC Chapel Hill for fall 2019.
