I recommend checking out the recorded slides and audio from a free webinar hosted by the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) last week. They shared helpful information about current state policies regarding in-state tuition and the president of the Dream.US scholarship discussed interesting information about their scholarships. Dream.US is the largest provider of scholarships for youth with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS). This webinar would be helpful for students who are seeking two year or four year college degrees.
To see the webinar’s slides and listen to the audio, please go to this link: “Variations in In-State Tuition, Financial Aid, and Scholarship Policies for Unauthorized Youth”
This chart about state policies from the webinar is particularly helpful: “State Policies on College Enrollment, In-State Tuition, and Financial Aid for Unauthorized Immigrants, Top 15 States of Residence of DACA-Eligible Youth (updated October 2015)”
Speakers of the webinar include:
Senior Staff Attorney, National Immigration Law Center
Director, Office of Latino Outreach and Services, Bluegrass Community and Technical College
Associate Policy Analyst, MPI
Director, National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy, MPI
