I am a sponsored student at Oklahoma State University who came to the US under J-1 Visa, which expired on July 31, 2019. I was prevented from achieving my Master's degree due to severe sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination faced in my Department of Geology that Title IX investigators masked under racism (student dispute). I have asked Title IX investigators to reopen my case which is now an ongoing process. In the meantime, I was denied the arbitration procedure stipulated in my contract (TOA) by Ms. Meged (Fulbright Program Officer) who is threatening me of deportation if I do not confirm leaving the US on August 30, 2019.
Please, would you help me with legal advice on a pro bono basis? I currently have no income and my scholarship was $1,340. Thank you very much for your time to read my email.
