Help Support the Immediate Assistance Fund for Undocumented Students

In recognition of DREAM Action NIU's 10th Annual Coming Out of the Shadows, the leaders of DREAM Action are kindly requesting support for the Immediate Assistance Fund for Undocumented Students. This fund 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.
