You can’t make this stuff up.
But Hampshire College has.
Via The Daily Hampshire Gazette (h/t reader Charles via Daily Caller):
Hampshire College has created an endowment for students not eligible for loans or federal grants because they are undocumented immigrants.
The college has raised $350,000 from students, alumni, parents and donors, and the first undocumented student drawing on the endowment will arrive on campus next month, said Margaret Cerullo, a professor who organized the campaign….
The college hopes to increase the endowment to $1 million, to enable it to make the same commitment to an incoming student every year, she said.
Hampshire’s new endowment has sparked movements to create similar programs at Smith and Mount Holyoke colleges, as well as at Guilford College in North Carolina, Cerullo said.
