BERKELEY (CBS/AP) — The University of California, Berkeley says a $1 million gift will help provide scholarships to nearly 200 students who are illegal immigrants.

Haas, Jr. Fund President Ira Hirschfield says he hopes other donors will consider “providing funding to help undocumented students achieve their potential.”
