“as well as a program for so-called “Dreamers”
Shouldn’t American citizens come first? This is a public school, after all.

Not here legally? UMN has a scholarship for that
The University of Minnesota is offering scholarships to illegal immigrants.
On its website, the school talks about the scholarship program for illegal immigrants, as well as a program for so-called “Dreamers,” the name ascribed to individuals who came to the U.S. illegally with their parents as children, many of whom former President Barack Obama granted temporary legal status. President Donald Trump discontinued that program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
UMN has a policy specifically for DACA recipients, where, in some circumstances, they are eligible to receive financial aid or a scholarship. The University of Minnesota states on its website that DACA recipients are eligible for scholarships if they attended a Minnesota high school for three or more years and graduated or earned a GED from a Minnesota high school.
Males 18-25 are also required to register for the draft to be eligible for scholarship funds. According to the Minnesota Office of Higher Education, applicants are also required to “provide documentation to show they have applied for lawful immigration status, but only if a federal process exists for a student to do so.”
The office notes that since “there is currently not a federal process in place” for Dreamer status, “this documentation is not currently required.”
