The Illinois DREAM Fund Scholarship

The Illinois DREAM Fund Scholarship

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).

To find out how to apply for The Illinois DREAM Fund Scholarship, click here.

The Illinois DREAM Act also makes the State’s 529 college savings and prepaid tuition programs available to Illinoisans with Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers, regardless of whether they have social security numbers.  This means that those undocumented Illinoisans with ITINs will be allowed to participate in both the College Illinois! Prepaid Tuition Program and the Bright Start and Bright Directions college savings plans.

The Dream Fund Scholarship deadline has been extended til March 1st, 2013.
