Today, I made a donation to the Somerville Dreams Scholarship, managed by the MIRA Coalition. What’s that, you ask? Here’s how they describe it:
Somerville High School draws talented students from all over the world, but when they graduate, many face a huge obstacle: If they’re undocumented, have a temporary status, or are in the process of getting papers, they don’t qualify for federal financial aid. Most also won’t qualify for in-state tuition at Massachusetts public colleges. Invest today in students who’ve already been admitted to college, and help bring their dreams closer to reality!
