    Answered . Hello:

    Thank you for your question. It depends on the nature in which you were granted withholding of removal. If your withholding or suspension was procured under Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), you may be eligible for financial aid. Please note that all individuals under withholding are eligible for aid relating to basic need, such as food aids, and the such.

    You should consult your school administration or an immigration lawyer to guide you through this process.

    Good luck.
