Help Support the Immediate Assistance Fund for Undocumented Students
The Immediate Assistance Fund for Undocumented Students provides our students who are ineligible for federal financial aid small grants for emergency needs. These grants can help undocumented students pay for books, prescription glasses or legal fees.
This fund was created at the request of the Latino Alumni Council when members recognized the need to assist Huskies in paying some of the costs associated with attending NIU.
The Immediate Assistance Fund is unique because it goes directly to the students to offset essential costs. In the past, we have helped students pay for eyeglasses, crutches and books, as well as partial rent assistance, DACA renewals and legal fees.

Donate to help our Huskies with gift cards to Target, Jewel or our bookstore.
Donating this amount can help pay for a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) renewal. DACA provides Huskies temporary relief from deportation (deferred action), a work authorization permit, and a temporary social security number.
