"Our goal is to support undocumented students, who despite growing up in the United States and earning their high school diplomas, continuously face challenging road blocks when pursuing a post-secondary education."
Stand-up for Dreamers!
Of the nearly 1.2 million undocumented youth eligible for DACA, an estimated 140,000 students between 16 and 24 years old are enrolled in two- or four-year institutions while another 80,000 have obtained at least an associate’s degree. But, both DACA and undocumented students are not eligible for federal financial aid and other types of financial aid that make college more affordable.
Let's continue making a difference in their lives. Join us in a night of laughs, fun, and drinks. All of the money from this comedy show will go towards providing scholarships to undocumented students. For tickets to this event, please purchase them at our Eventbrite page by clicking here.
The Dream Gala
In the fall of 2009, The Dream Gala Committee was formed with student leaders, alumni and staff from various campus based organizations at the University of Illinois at Chicago to address the funding needs of undocumented students.
