DACA Information
I recently started a campaign to help undocumented students understand the recent developments with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Part of this campaign involves sharing in-depth, expert-driven resources on the topic. After checking out your site, I have a few guides that I think will really help your community.

The first guide focuses on making college a reality for undocumented students by detailing scholarship opportunities, advocacy groups, and enrollment tips. This guide was also created with the support of Jenesis Long, an academic counselor at Oregon State for first-generation and low-income students. You can read more here:

Expert Advice and Resources for Undocumented College Students - https://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/undocumented-college-student-resources/

The second guide focuses on the recent decision by the Trump administration to roll back the DACA program. It answers frequently asked questions about the change, goes over undocumented students' rights, and includes a directory of resources students can use to get help moving forward.

Students' Guide to DACA Phaseout - https://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/daca-and-undocumented-students/

Would you consider adding these to your site as additional resources? I think they’d make great additions to http://whs.warden.wednet.edu/whs-counseling-center-1aba64bb

SCHOLARSHIPS NOT REQUIRING RESIDENCY

about 1 year ago

 College bound students who are not citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States are not eligible for State or Federal financial assistance because of their immigration status.  If addition, they are generally classified as international students and therefore are required to pay higher tuition and fees. However, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) has compiled a list of scholarships that are open to students that do not require residency. The list is available on MALDEF's website at www.maldef.org.
