Federal law makes it a crime to encourage illegals to reside here but again obozo just ignores the law.!!!

Great, let's encourage illegals to step in front of and over possibly more deserving and needy legal students for these scholarships.

These are not government scholarships. Some rich guy is funding the scholarships with his own money.

It's his money, he can do whatever the Hell he wants with it.

I fund a couple of college scholarships to the local community college every year, with MY MONEY. I make the call on who gets those scholarships every year, because its MY MONEY, not yours.

You don't like it? Tough.

You are free to open your check book and fund a scholarship of your choice with your money.

Lol. I think they'd be eligible for a whole lot more as citizens, but I guess they can try.

When I give out my relatively small scholarships, I don't even ask if they are "illegal."

All I care about is that they are good students from low-income families that may not be able to go to school without my help.
