Emergency Pandemic Aid for Undocumented College Students

On May 11th, 2023, the Biden administration said that it would issue a regulation allowing undocumented students access to some of the $36 billion in emergency stimulus aid flowing to colleges. The goal of this regulation is to make sure all students have access to the funds, as well as helping them get back on track. It is going to be up to the individual colleges and universities how the funding will be distributed amongst their students.
