MIAMI (AP) - Miami Dade College is joining a national push to provide funds to help qualified undocumented youth pay for college.
    
Former Washington Post owner Donald Graham is behind the national TheDream.US push. On Tuesday, he joins College President Eduard J. Padron at a round table at Miami's historic Freedom Tower to discuss the effort.
    
Miami Dade has long supported youth brought to the country as children who now live here illegally and want to go to college. And it has offered them in-state tuition. Graham's group has raised $25 million since its inception, and of the more than 39 students who received scholarships, 22 are from Miami Dade College.
