Mass. college offers illegal immigrant scholarship - News - Boston.com

It's a private college and it's obviously private money going into the fund (though some public universities have offered scholarships specifically for illegals as well, as is mentioned in the article). That being said, I still wish the money was being made available to help students who aren't illegal aliens.

Moreover, I really think it should be illegal for colleges - including private ones - to even admit illegal aliens as students, but that's a bit off topic.

What they are attempting may be illegal.

So basically when a LEGAL student goes to apply for admission to that school they may not get in because a seat has already been filled by an illegal immigrant? People think that there is no competition for admission, but there is. When the admission counselor and personnel sees that they have met their limit, would that extra seat that was taken by an illegal immigrant fall into the equation? Yes, it would. Give legal people a chance before an illegal immigrant.

Illegal Aliens, In-State Tuition and the Law
The college is privately funded and apparently doesn't receive any money from government, so it's pretty hard to tell people what to do with their money on a private level. Question is: where are those illegals going to find the $25,000(+?) they will need to make up the difference between the scholarship and what they will have to pay?

With the condition of our job market and economy, I don't see a future demand for those who hold liberal arts degrees. How does someone with a liberal arts degree compete with someone who has a degree in business management or finance? I think for many of those illegals who obtain a liberal arts degree and have big dreams of going out an conquering the world, will be more community oriented than corporate. It's like the kids who can't find a job who have degrees in anthropology or basketweaving but want to start somewhere in middle management with a nice starting salary. It just doesn't work that way.
