Freedom University in Georgia is starting its fifth year this Sunday August 30th!
Freedom University provides rigorous college-level courses, leadership development, and scholarship assistance for undocumented youth in the state of Georgia. To apply, prospective students must register on Freedom U.’s website: “Apply to Freedom University“
Freedom University was founded in 2011 in response to Policy 4.1.6 that bans undocumented students from attending the top five public universities in the state. Students at Freedom University also work in partnership with other colleges and universities to reform admissions and financial aid policies for undocumented students. As a result of Freedom University’s collaboration with the Freedom at Emory initiative, Emory University announced in April 2015 that it would accept and provide financial aid to undocumented students. The University of Georgia also has a strong student group (The Undocumented Student Alliance) that works in partnership with Freedom University.
