Al terminar la secundaria, millones de estudiantes indocumentados se enfrentan a la dura realidad del sistema escolar estadounidense: su falta de oportunidades de ingresar a una universidad debido a su estatus migratorio. Es por ello que estudiantes de dos universidades han decidido hacer algo para ayudarlos.

Los estudiantes de Prescott College, universidad situada en Prescott, Arizona, decidieron aprobar una contribución de 30 dólares por estudiante para poder ofrecer becas a inmigrantes indocumentados.

Se trata de la primera vez que una universidad en el estado de Arizona establece un donativo de esta índole en sus colegiaturas. Sin embargo no es la primera institución del país en ofrecer esta ayuda.

Desde hace un par de semanas, los estudiantes de Loyola University, en Chicago, tomaron una decisión similar para ayudar a estudiantes indocumentados, quienes al no contar con un estatus migratorio legal no son elegibles para recibir ayudas financieras por parte del estado o el gobierno federal.

La beca que ofrecerá el Prescott College, que llevará por nombre “Freedom Education Fund”, fue fundada por Miriel Manning, una estudiante de maestría en Justicia Social y Derechos Humanos. “Me inspiré en el valiente liderazgo y organización de personas indocumentadas en todo el país”, dijo.

Por su parte, John Flicker, presidente de la universidad, expresó estar “orgulloso de que nuestros alumnos tomen el rol de activistas becarios”. La universidad proporcionará la diferencia entre lo que se recabe de los estudiantes y el costo total de los programas de estudio.

Flicker puntualizó que el cobro será mandatorio, pero el estudiante que no quiera pagarlo puede solicitar excluirse.

    Common skin warts can be effectively treated with over-the-counter medication containing salicylic acid. An uproar has ensued from this, with many mothers, pastors, sisters and friends, associating this preventative measure with giving tacit approval for their teen aged daughters to become sexually active, rather than looking at it as a safeguard against a serious health issue later in life. A person affected by HPV would have skin warts, genital warts, cervical dysplasia, and cervical cancer.

    I do trust all the concepts you have introduced to your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    I believe everything said was actually very reasonable. But, think about this, suppose you were to create a awesome title? I ain’t saying your content is not good, but what if you added a post title to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Chabot College is kinda boring. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.

    For the best combination of eczema treatments, you should apply natural herbs to your skin topically, regularly and systemically. In particular, they have noticed that their itching stopped after 3 days, with 50% of the redness gone, and all their eczema disappeared within 7 days. In most cases you will find that the condition will not be located on the head or scalp region.

    I do like the way you have presented this particular problem plus it does give me personally some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, from just what I have experienced, I just simply trust when the opinions pack on that individuals continue to be on issue and not start on a tirade regarding the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this fantastic piece and although I can not really agree with it in totality, I value your standpoint.
