Jeff Bezos is helping to send 1,000 Dreamers to college

Jeff Bezos is helping 1,000 Dreamers go to college. The Amazon (AMZN) CEO and his wife, MacKenzie, donated $33 million to TheDream.US, a national scholarship fund for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and are protected from deportation under the DACA program. The grant is the largest in the organization's history. It will go to DACA-eligible graduating high school students around the country. Each student will get $33,000 in aid over four years to help pay tuition and fees. The students will be eligible to attend one of 76 colleges and universities in 15 states that partner with the scholarship fund. Nearly 3,000 undocumented students are enrolled today
