Illinois Dream Act for Undocumented Students

While some states have tightened regulations around illegal immigration in recent years, Illinois has continued to institute policies that give it some of the most immigrant-friendly policies in the country. Immigrants can apply for tuition help to attend Illinois colleges and universities because of the Illinois DREAM Fund, which was created by state legislation passed in 2011.

The fund has raised $500,000 in private donations so far. Immigrant students attending two-year colleges are eligible to apply for $2,000 scholarships and those attending four-year institutions can apply for $6,000.
