At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Illinois Dream Fund Scholarship

The Illinois Dream Fund Scholarship seeks to create access to financial resources to further the growth and development for the immigrant leaders of tomorrow, including undocumented immigrants. 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).

Scholarship awards will be paid directly to the school and not the student. To be eligible to apply for the Illinois Dream Fund Scholarship, an undocumented student must meet the following criteria:
  • High school or college GPA of 2.5 (on a 4-point scale);
  • Have resided with his/her parent(s) or guardian(s) while attending high school in Illinois;
  • Have graduated from a high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma (GED) in Illinois after attending an Illinois high school for at least three years.
Application Information:

The internal (U of C) deadline to apply is February 1, 2013. Please see the Illinois Dream Fund website for more information.
