SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Two Indiana colleges are among 14 that will partner with a charter school network to provide students who are illegal immigrants with easier access to higher education.

The Noble Network of Charter Schools says Holy Cross College in South Bend, Wabash College in Crawfordsville and 12 other schools will provide those students in a scholarship program with enough financial aid for them to avoid direct payments to the schools.

Noble Network of Charter Schools Superintendent and CEO Michael Milkie says illegal immigrant students across the country often miss out on college educations because they’re ineligible for financial aid.

The agreement will be available to Noble Network seniors who have qualified for a temporary federal relief from deportation and are accepted to one of the four-year colleges in the partnership.
