Last week, I joined United We Dream, an immigrant youth-led national organization, to share my experience, advice, and key resources about applying to graduate school as an undocumented student. I am currently in my second year of doctoral study at Harvard University and to get there- it took a community! From finding supportive mentors and fundraising to pay for my grad school application fees to securing research opportunities and creating/sustaining my support network, I am always happy to share my advice with fellow undocumented students.
If you missed our RadGrads: Undocumented Students in Grad School webinar, you can now watch it online!
If you are applying to grad school (or thinking about it), or if you are an educator/counselor working with undocumented students, definitely check out this webinar. You will get to hear from Laura Bohorquez (undocumented student who received her Master’s in Higher Education), Diana Valdivia (undocumented student who completed her Master’s in Postsecondary Leadership), and myself. During the webinar, we shared helpful information about the different degrees one can pursue (e.g. Master’s, PhD, law, medicine, etc). You will also learn how, as an undocumented student, you can pay for grad school, find support, and successfully navigate the grad school application process:
If, after you watch the video, you have some questions/concerns about pursuing grad school as an undocumented student, please share those with us in the comments section below! Also, please help spread the word by sharing this post. We want as many undocumented students and educators to have access to this information!
