According to the Dept. of Education, illegals and DACA recipients are not allowed to receive federal financial aid. However, they can qualify for aid from their state or college.
Southern New Hampshire University is welcoming illegals with open arms, offering $20 million in scholarships.
From Campus Reform:
Southern New Hampshire University and two other organizations are spearheading a program that will provide $20 million in scholarships to illegal immigrant students.
According to the university, the school is partnering with The Shapiro Foundation and TheDream.US in an effort to provide full-ride scholarships to 1,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students over the next five years.
Paul LeBlanc, the president of the SNHU, said that the university is “in the business of hope,” voicing his support for the “talent and drive” exhibited by DACA students.
Southern New Hampshire University says its program would reach 1,000 students over the next five years who are part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.
The program would offer full scholarships to DACA students to pursue associate and bachelor’s degree programs through one of the university’s online programs.
The announcement comes as the Obama-era DACA program that shielded hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation is at risk. President Donald Trump announced he was ending DACA unless lawmakers come up with a solution.
SNHU is merely a diploma mill. They don’t care about providing a quality education, they’re just in it for the money.
Still, this is sad.
