Working and Graduate Opportunities for Undocumented Students

Dear Partner Colleges,

Given the future termination of DACA, it is important that we have some information regarding after-college opportunities for undocumented students without DACA.  This will allow you to better counsel our Scholars.

Towards that end we would like to invite you to a webinar we are hosting on November 9th titled “Working and Graduate Opportunities for Undocumented Students”. Iliana Perez, Entrepreneur Initiatives Manager for Educators for Fair Consideration, will lead the webinar.  Iliana’s research focuses on the occupational and educational attainment of immigrant students, the effects of deportation on the lives of young adults, immigrant entrepreneurship, and economics of immigration.

The webinar will provide an overview of alternative ways to earn a living without work authorization, as well as information about funding available for undocumented students interested in pursuing graduate/professional school. Some of the topics that will be discussed related to alternative ways to earn a living include the following: an introduction to independent contact work, differences among the SSN, ITIN and EIN, and a general overview of common business models. The different types of funding available for graduate/professional that will be discussed include state aid, institutional fellowships, departmental funding, privately funded fellowships, scholarships, and crowd funding.

You are all invited to attend and please forward this invitation to others on your campus who would benefit from this webinar.  Career counselors would be especially interested.  Please register by Friday, November 3rd.
