Students at D.C.'s Wilson HS

The D.C. Tuition Assistance Grant Program is a federal program designed to help D.C. students pay for college at public institutions they might want to attend beyond the District’s one “in-state” option. But as debates around immigration enforcement heat up, one student alleges she was denied funding because of her parent’s immigration status. We explore the case and what it means for District residents.
