WEBINAR: Alternative Income and Career Options for Undocumented Students

This recorded webinar is geared for students and alumni who may not have DACA or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and for those who do hold these statuses but worry that it might end. No matter what comes, there are options! On campus, you may be eligible for research, learning or teaching fellowships that are not employment-based or scholarships providing funding for your education and living expenses. And, beyond campus, undocumented people without DACA or TPS can pursue careers and incomes, including owning your own business, independent contracting, and worker cooperatives. Hear from Iliana Perez of Immigrants Rising and Anh-Thu of Democracy at Work Institute, and a panel of alumni and students pursuing these opportunities.
