Thank you for the Eagle editorial August 24 in support of Hampshire College’s scholarship fund for undocumented students. The editorial framed the issue beautifully, conveying the importance of helping talented students who have studied hard and done nothing wrong to continue their education. We believe that educating young people helps them, the larger society, and the world -- wherever they were born.

We are proud that Hamp shire is able to help give hard-working kids a chance at an education, and grateful to the private donors who have supported this scholarship fund.
