Dream Scholarship Application

Dear Participants,

The Anhelo Project is a Chicago based non-profit organization that works to support undocumented students pursuing a post-secondary education within the State of Illinois.

Since 2011 The Anhelo Project has awarded over $200,000 to more than 60 recipients pursuing their dream to achieve an education beyond high school. Students do not need to have DACA status, and we strongly encourage undocumented students from all racial/ethnic backgrounds to apply.

The 2021 Anhelo Project Dream Scholarship was awarded to eligible high school seniors, undergraduate, graduate and/or vocational training students who demonstrated leadership, academic competitiveness, community involvement, and financial need. However, as of Fall 2021, the scholarship will no longer be open until further notice. While we understand there is a great community need, we want to bring the best version of the scholarship to future applicants. We are currently working on revamping the Anhelo Project, please look forward to our future updates.

We apologize for any inconvenience,
The Anhelo Project Team
