UC Pres proposes: $5 mil for DREAM Students, $10 mil for Grads and Post Doc

First read this story from her visit at Oakland Tech HS - and protest video in the Oakland Tribune piece (part of KR SJ Merc group): Napolitano, whose father graduated from Castlemont High School in Oakland, told students at Oakland Tech that if they qualify academically and they are poor, they don't need to worry about money to get in to a UC school.
The Oakland Tech HS visit happened earlier in the day and was met with protest. See ABClocal coverage: "We're going to do more for all first generation students whether they be documented, undocumented, than has ever been done," she said. "We're looking for ways to do that, and I would say, you know, watch what I do, don't rely on rumors from the past."
Three initiatives- Daily Cal has early coverage of Napolitano's Commonwealth speech here

Daily Bruin: Napolitano to allocate $15M to student programs

Dirks met with undocumented in this piece

UCB Graduate students protested on Sproul earlier

will update with more coverage of her speech here: HuffPo/AP: Janet Napolitano Pledges $5 Million To Aid Students Living In The U.S. Illegally

Chicago Tribune- Reuters: University of California to spend $5 million to help undocumented students

Fox News Latino went w/ Reuters too

Commonwealth Club has a multimedia section where her speech will likely be posted, hopefully soon for those unable to attend.
