Miami Dade College announced last week that it will be giving scholarships to DREAMers--the undocumented students who have grown up in the United States and would like to attend college here.
MDC has joined forces with TheDream.US, who will be providing the scholarships.
On Tuesday the college held a ceremony at the Freedom Tower where the 22 Miami-Dade scholarship recipients signed their scholar commitment forms surrounded by their families and advisors.
College students from Miami and elsewhere around the state are trying to keep the dream alive.
They came by bus to Tallahassee during the opening week of the legislative session. The group is known as the Dream Defenders.
Phillip Agnew, Executive Director of Dream Defenders, led a news conference inside the Capitol then spoke with us about the group’s legislative agenda.
