WASHINGTON - A group of Republicans and Democrats has launched a $25 million college scholarship fund for undocumented young immigrants in the United States.

Former Washington Post CEO Don Graham, who leads the group, said that helping to make college affordable is a step in the right direction while Congress weighs comprehensive immigration reform.

TheDream.Us fund will award 1,000 full-tuition scholarships to students living in the U.S. as temporary residents under President Obama’s Defferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Graham, Democratic National Committee Finance chairman Henry Muñoz, former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Inter-American Development Bank are among the scholarship fund’s financiers.

Big-name Republicans such as Jeb Bush, Newt Gingrich and Grover Norquist have endorsed the fund.
College students legally in the U.S. via deferred action don’t qualify for federal student aid or Pell grants.
State aid and scholarships vary from state to state. About 18 states offer in-state tuition rates to all young, undocumented students — regardless of their legal situation.

TheDream.US is giving scholarships to students pursuing degrees in non-liberal arts fields such as nursing, teaching and accounting. So far, it has distributed 38 scholarships, and winners are attending a specific set of colleges.

The scholarships will be worth $25,000 each, and TheDream.US worked out tuition rates with specific schools to ensure that the money will cover the full cost of a degree

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service? Cheers!

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
