Thousands of undocumented students have attained their educational goals through AB 540. However, educators and students from across the state continue to see challenges in accessing the available funding and navigating the complicated eligibility requirements for AB 540/SB 68. Together we must go further and widen the door of opportunity for undocumented students in California who dream of reaching their educational goals.
“I want to celebrate AB 540 and SB 68, but frankly, the fact that there are so many more eligible that are not getting the aid means that there’s a systems problem.” — Tammeil Gilkerson, president of Evergreen Valley College in San Jose, shares with EdSource.
