NASFAA Mention: DACA Students to Get Emergency Aid From California Systems

"While Democratic senators continue to criticize U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for excluding so-called DACA students from receiving emergency grants, the University of California and California State University systems said they will use their own funds to help the immigrant students during the pandemic," Inside Higher Ed reports.

... "Justin Draeger, president and CEO of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, said other colleges considering giving grants to those covered by DACA do not want to say so publicly. 'We applaud any schools who can garner the will and resources to care for students who have been excluded by the Trump administration,' he said in an email."
