The DREAM Act passes!

The DREAM Act (S.1250) expands educational opportunities in New York for undocumented immigrants. Dreamers will now be eligible for the NYS Tuition Assistance Program, the Excelsior Scholarship (for free tuition at public colleges and universities in New York), and other financial aid awards for college. Students have to apply to attend college or university in New York within five years of finishing high school or a GED program.
