As an undocumented student or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) student, you do not qualify for state or federal financial aid. You might be eligible for scholarships from private foundations or community organizations.
The following is a list of resources and scholarship links that undocumented students can explore and apply for:
- UIC Resources for Undocumented Students
- Scholarships for Undocumented Students [PDF]
- How to Support Undocumented Students at UIC [PDF]
Because of particular issues that arise when considering applicants for scholarships, OSSP is happy to meet one-on-one with students who have questions about citizenship status and discuss the impact of their situations on applying for awards.
