Good morning,

One of the big focuses of the updated School Counseling Program Model<https://schools.utah.gov/file/976fc2d5-ed7b-425b-bf24-ee378dd6f641> is providing services and resources for each student to support access, attainment and achievement.  One of the questions frequently asked is what are you doing to support underserved populations in becoming college and career ready.  Specifically, undocumented and first generation students.  Lais Martinez's role at USHE encompasses many college initiatives, including outreach to support underserved populations.  This webpage<https://educate-utah.org/> is comprehensive and provides information regarding undocumented students accessing higher education in Utah including:
-          HB 144 (2002) eligibility for undocumented students who graduated from a Utah high school to pay in-state tuition.
-          SB 253 (2015) allowing Utah public universities/colleges to receive and disburse private scholarships to undocumented students.  This opportunity was legislatively changed in 2009 or 2010 and then restored in this 2015 bill.
-          There are legitimate scholarships for Utah students to use at Utah USHE institutions.  This site is unique to Utah-based USHE schools.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Lais Martinez<mailto:questions at educate-utah.org>.
