Dreaming of College

If you don't qualify for DACA or recently qualified and live in Illinois you can apply for a college scholarship through the Illinois Dream Fund.  In 2013, the Dream Fund was able to award $100,000 to 35 undocumented youth to attend two/four year institutions.  As of December 20th, 2013, the Fund will launch the online application for new candidates and year two recipients of the Illinois Dream Fund.

This opportunity is open to undocumented and "DACAmented" high school seniors as well as current undergraduates attending or planning to attend an accredited non-profit public/private institution in or outside Illinois. Students must possess a 2.5 GPA+ and the requirements of the Illinois Dream Act. Deadline is March 1, 2014
