Undocumented students find the path through college

"Salgado is fortunate that private universities like Dominican make a conscious effort to help undocumented students. Merit and private scholarships will cover two-thirds of her tuition.  Dominican University President Donna Carroll said it is part of her school’s Catholic mission to help undocumented students like Salgado.  “Their courage is so admirable,” she said. “How can we as an institution not be as courageous as they are?”  The Illinois law creates a DREAM commission that will manage the private scholarships. It allows parents to buy into statewide college savings plans and also requires high school counselors receive training to assist undocumented students." - Teresa Puente, Nov. 10, 2011.
