This coming Monday, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam will be visiting Marymount University to hold a ceremonial bill signing for House Bill 2123 and Senate Bill 1387.

The legislation will make Virginia students eligible for state financial aid if they are eligible for in-state tuition in the fall of 2022, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. At private institutions like Marymount, this will allow Dreamer students the ability to receive financial assistance through Virginia’s TAG program – increasing higher education access and opening the door for more students to achieve their goals and aspirations.

In addition to the Governor, event attendees include the President of Marymount and several Virginia lawmakers. A Marymount student who will gain access to TAG grant funding will also speak on the importance of this legislation and why it is meaningful to their academic journey.
