DACA / Immigrant Students Fund

 

In this time of great uncertainty and tremendous stress for DACA and undocumented students, we recognize that additional resources are needed at John Jay to support these students, and we know that many of you may be interested in finding ways to help.  For this reason, we are reaching out today to ask for your contributions to support priority needs in coming months, including: 

  1. Emergency Grants:  This is where a little goes a long way.  We are seeking funding to support emergency grants for DACA students whose work authorizations expire after 3/5/18 and who no longer have the ability to work in order to support their families and their academic pursuits.
  2. Scholarships: We are seeking funding to support scholarships for undocumented students (including DACA students), who are not eligible for federal or state aid.
  3. New America Student Support Center:  We are seeking funding to create a campus center with dedicated staff who can support the success of students who may be undocumented, immigrants, or coming from mixed-status families by:
    1. Student Support: Assisting students in overcoming the unique academic, personal and professional challenges that they may encounter as college students by serving as a trusted resource on campus to provide a safe space and support for undocumented and immigrant students, connect students with other reliable community-based services or free legal services;
    2. Faculty and Campus Support:  Strengthening the diversity and inclusivity of our campus by developing campus-wide awareness, training, and professional development supports for faculty and staff in order to help them support the success of students regardless of immigration status; and
    3. Legal Support:  Providing free direct immigration legal services to John Jay students, family members, and surrounding community members.
