A+ Program to Expand

MISSOURI – Education officials in Missouri are planning to expand the A+ scholarship program to reach high school students who came to the U.S. illegally before their 16th birthday.

According to the Missouri Department of Higher Education, those students will be eligible to participate in the program, which gives students two free years of tuition at area community colleges for helping other students in the classroom.

This is all in an effort to reach students who have applied with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for “Deffered Action for Childhood Arrivals”

If a student achieves that status, they are eligible for work authorization as well as education benefits because they are deemed “lawfully present” in the U.S., according to Department of Higher Education.
