The 2019 Application is Live

The DDLR Scholarship is pleased to announce that the 2019 Scholarship Application is now available!

This scholarship was created in memory of Dennis De La Rosa by his loved ones. He obtained a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in Accounting and graduated on May 5, 2012. Having the disadvantage of being an undocumented student, Dennis did not qualify for financial assistance, leaving him no choice, but to find a job to pay for his education.

Dennis was able to balance being a full-time student and employee, managing to graduate with a 3.4 GPA. It is safe to say that Dennis was truly an inspiration to his loved ones, and this is our way to pass on his legacy.

The scholarship is intended to assist undocumented college students from the Chicago area in achieving their dream of finishing their education at a four year college or university.
