Undocumented AB540 DACA Law Student

Postby LawDreamer15 » Fri Jan 23, 2015 2:30 pm

How are students who are undocumented creatively paying for tuition? I myself have been awarded scholarship that will pay for little over half of tuition for all three years but still need to come up with the rest. I am looking for ways to fund my education. I plan to live at my parents house and go full time. I am currently in the process of becoming a resident and do have a work permit. Most importantly for me is having the resources to pay for the first year. I think once I become a resident I can quality for federal loans right? Basically I need $10,000 a semester and another $10,000 for my second.

Any ideas, scholarship information, or work study program experiences would be helpful. Maybe even fundraisers in the community?
