Financial Aid for Undocumented Students
Funding from the College is available to students who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents. Funding from private sources is also available. This page will provide links to and details about securing such funding.
|Lake Forest Scholarships|
|Unless noted otherwise, undocumented students are eligible for the scholarships found on our Scholarships Page.|
|Lake Forest Grant|
|Grants are similar to scholarships - you do not repay them. A grant is “need-based” so it considers your family income and other resources. To apply, complete our Undocumented Student Financial Aid Application for the 2019-2020 or 2018-2019 academic year.|
|Total Lake Forest Funding|
The value of combined grant and scholarship funds is up to $35,000.
You can expect to receive similar aid each year if your academic performance is consistent with the standards of the College. An annual application is not required.
|Federal and State Grants and Loans|
|To receive funds from the federal government and/or State of Illinois, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.|
|Private Scholarships and Grants|
The following sites will help you identify scholarship opportunities outside of Lake Forest College.
|Work-Study is an opportunity to have a part-time job on campus, and is funded by the College. In most cases the amount offered is up to $2,500 per year, though this is not guaranteed. To qualify, you must: (1) have DACA status, and (2) show financial need (Undocumented Student Financial Aid Application), and (3) have an employment authorization document.|
|Private Student Loans|
|Loans may be available if you have a credit-worthy co-signor who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The College is not a lender. View some of the loan options.|
