Illinois DREAM Act

The Illinois DREAM Act was signed by Governor Pat Quinn on August 1, 2011. The Illinois DREAM Act is designed to make scholarships, college savings, and prepaid tuition programs available to undocumented students who graduated from Illinois high schools. The Act also creates an Illinois DREAM Fund, and a nine-member Illinois DREAM Commission, appointed by the Governor with Senate consent.
