Immigrant scholarship program to take applications
CHICAGO – When 25-year-old Rigoberto Padilla first enrolled in one of Chicago's community colleges in 2007, there were few financial aid options available for illegal immigrants like him.
He was brought to the country from Mexico at age 6 when his family crossed the California border illegally for a new life in Chicago.
Starting this Thursday, Illinois officials expect thousands of young immigrants to apply for help for college through a privately-funded state scholarship program.
