Clark College sophomore Dinara Dursun noticed right away the lack of financial assistance for her tuition and fees for fall quarter this year.

“It was emergency grants; that’s what I got last year. And this year, I was like, you know, where’s my money? Where’s that $1,000?”

Dursun, 24, will graduate from Clark in June with an associate degree in digital media arts with a focus in graphic design.
