Can undocumented students receive Institutional and state aid for college
Is institutional aid available to anyone regardless of immigration status? According to the fafsa it says that undocumented students may be eligible for college or state aid. Is college aid institutional aid? # #financial-aid #college
I think for common cases, there are often more restrictions on getting federal aid for undocumented students. However, there are more chances for undocumented students to qualify for state aids depending on each state. There are extended scholarships and aids specific for undocumented students out there so please don't get discouraged and give up on the search! It can be really frustrating but you got this.
I'll include some example websites that have financial resources for undocumented students below.

Either way, if I am wondering, I would recommend calling the office of financial aid and simply ask your question. There are a lot of funds out there for literally everyone.
I also want to let you know that if you are a DACA high school student applying to a university( or a transfer student from a community college doing the same) apply to the DreamUS National scholarship. They will pay for full tuition and provide assistance for your textbooks. I will provide the link below :) best of luck
