Oxnard College is One of 21 Institutions to Receive Grants to Pursue 100% Tobacco-Free Campus
Brownley Announces $527,000 in Grants to Educational Organizations to Help Underserved Students Prepare for and Attend College
Mexico is gearing up for the possibility that DACA's phase-out could bring the deportation of Dreamers, a consulate official told undocumented students Wednesday in Oxnard.
In addition to providing help at consulates to Dreamers who can still renew DACA applications, the Mexican government is launching efforts to help deported people find jobs south of the border, said Karina Blas, deputy consul for the Mexican Consulate in Oxnard.
DACA provides work permits and protection for more than 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children, including nearly 223,000 in California. An estimated 7,000 in Ventura County are eligible for the program, including 1,100 students alone in our three community colleges.
More than $527,000 in Department of Educations grants will help underserved students in Ventura County carve a path to college.
The Ventura County Community College District and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) National Educational Service Centers each received a federal grant to implement Upward Bound programs, which help students from low-income families become first-generation college attendees. The grants were announced by the office of U.S. Rep. Julia Brownley, D-Westlake Village.
“Oxnard College is offering free tuition to our graduating students this year, as long as they take a full load of classes and keep a grade-point average of 2.1 or above.”
