USC Resources for Undocumented Students

In social work and nursing, the linchpin of our values is social justice for all. Our vigilance and concern for equity has been central to this school since its earliest inception and stands as a hallmark today. As a consequence, we are deeply concerned about the way in which current executive orders have been implemented and their impact on individuals, families and communities. As a school, we pledge to continue our tradition of action and concern for those who are oppressed, neglected and vulnerable to exploitation, wherever they may be.

GSG Fund to Support Undocumented and International Students

This fund is intended to provide financial assistance for undocumented students and for international students impacted by presidential executive orders barring citizens from certain countries from entering the United States. The GSG fund will provide emergency support for students facing revocation of their student visas as a result of the current administration’s actions and also enable students who have benefited from the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to pay the required fees to renew their DACA status.

 Students may apply for reimbursement or support for funding for the following expenses:

  1. DACA renewal fees
  2. Visa renewal fees
  3. Travel or stay expenses as a result of delayed/impacted travel due to the travel ban. Eligible expenses include airfare, rental car and housing accommodations, such as hotel.

Students must include receipts for all reimbursable expenses.

Students are eligible for a maximum of $700 in funding.
