"The US Department of Education has announced more than $36 billion in emergency grants for postsecondary education under the American Rescue Plan Act’s Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF III). For the first time, international students will also be eligible for assistance," The Pie News reports.
..."The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators president Justin Draeger added that 'denying emergency grants to DACA and undocumented students wasn’t just legally questionable, it was a moral failing.'"
'I’m relieved and thankful to see that corrected,' Draeger said."
