We are witnessing a period of extraordinary growth within the undocumented immigrant community. The world is constantly changing, and with that change, come great challenges and opportunities. Regardless of what lies ahead, we are certain of one thing; access to education for undocumented immigrants, is essential for the growth of Illinois and this nation.

Tomorrow’s leaders will need to be able to be great thinkers, possessing both wisdom and depth of understanding. And they must have a profound sensitivity to people’s needs and motivations. The Illinois Dream Fund Scholarship seeks to create access to financial resources to further this growth and development for the immigrant leaders of tomorrow. With the generous offerings of private donors and in-kind donations, the Illinois Dream Fund Scholarship provides scholarships to undocumented students, who are incoming freshmen or current undergraduates that possess at least a 2.5 GPA (on a 4 point scale).
