Federal Guide Outlines Help for Undocumented Students
The U.S. Department of Education last week released the first in a set of resource guides designed to help school officials support undocumented immigrant students.
The 63-page guide aims to clarify the legal rights of undocumented high school and college students, share resources about federal and private financial aid available to them, and discuss how to support students who came to the United States as children to apply for relief from deportation.
It also includes advice for educators on how to support undocumented youths, a list of private scholarships for which they might be eligible, and tips for migrant students working to access their education records for consideration from deportation.
