The Anhelo Project Dream Scholarship Application

The Anhelo Project is a non-for-profit organization that consists of a group of student leaders and professionals from various educational institutions and community based organizations in Chicago. Our goal is to support undocumented students, many of whom despite growing up in the United States and earning a high school diploma, continuously face challenging roadblocks when pursuing a post-secondary education. One major obstacle being financial need due to ineligibility to apply for federal and state financial aid. The Anhelo Project Dream Scholarship will be awarded to deserving undergraduate or graduate students who demonstrate leadership, academic competitiveness, community involvement, and financial need. 

We are pleased to announce The Anhelo Project Dream Scholarship Application. The Anhelo Project will award $2,000.00 for the 2018 Spring or Fall semesters to deserving undergraduate or graduate students who demonstrate leadership, academic competitiveness, community involvement, and financial need. The Dream Scholarship will be open to Illinois residents attending any college or university within the State of Illinois. You can find additional information here.
