Pat Quinn, Governor of Illinois will sign a bill that will provide facilities for immigrants who cannot live in the United States to apply for college scholarships and access to private savings programs for universities in this state.
This initiative requires from students to have, at least, one immigrant parent (with or without permission to live in the country). Students had to attend at least three years at school in Illinois to be eligible to receive money from a scholarship.
Quinn visited today the Benito Juarez Community Academy in Chicago in order to sign the DREAM Act in Illinois. (BG)
