Today’s Supreme Court decision is a significant win for dreamers and their supporters, and that should be celebrated. However, this victory does not mean that our work is done. We must keep working and fighting for immigration justice both at the national level and here at Cal Poly.
ASI remains committed to continuing our work in support of our undocumented, mixed-status, and DACAmented communities. Over the next few months, we will work with the Cal Poly Dream Center, UndocuAlly Working Group, and Office of University Diversity and Inclusion to ensure our undocumented students receive the legal, financial, and mental/physical health services needed.
One step that ASI has already taken to support Cal Poly’s undocumented community is the establishment of the ASI Dreamer Scholarship. This past spring quarter, the ASI Board of Directors approved the establishment of the ASI Dreamer Scholarship which will provide a maximum of five scholarships per academic year not exceeding $4,500 in total. More information including eligibility and application procedures will be announced in summer 2020.
