Do you want to ensure that your entire education will be paid for at a cost to your fellow students and the American taxpayers? Easy: just revoke your citizenship, come back into the country as an “undocumented immigrant,” and apply to Emory University, where illegal immigrants are offered the full package of financial benefits for the sake of diversity.
“Emory meets 100% of demonstrated financial need for undergraduate Undocumented Students (with or without DACA) who are admitted as first-year, first-degree-seeking students, and who graduated from a U.S. High school through a combination of grants and scholarships, institutional work study (DACA students only), and institutional loans. Undocumented Students without DACA status may receive an institutional loan in place of the typical work study award,” the university notes on its website.
Emory spokesperson Megan McRainey clarified to The College Fix that the full-ride scholarship and grant packages for illegal immigrant students are all part of the school’s quest to welcome “students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds.”
“Emory accepts undocumented students for admission and financial aid, including those udner the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program,” she wrote in an email. In a small win for sanity, though, McRainey clarified that “Emory is not seeking to establish itself as a sanctuary campus, for which there is no legal definition” and noted that “Emory adheres to all applicable laws and will continue to do so.”
If you’re unwise enough to attend Emory University as a law-abiding international student who acquires the appropriate documentation to live and study in the United States, you can except to pay $70,000 per year for the privilege of attending the fancy Atlanta school.
Furthermore, you have to prove that you’re capable of shelling out the big bucks while attending Emory: “As an international applicant, you are required to certify that you have sufficient funds to cover your expenses while attending Emory University,” the school’s website confirms.
