DREAM Act

The California DREAM Act of 2011 is the result of two bills, Assembly Bill 130 (AB 130) and Assembly Bill 131 (AB 131). Together, these bills allow undocumented and documented students who meet certain provisions of AB 540 to apply for and receive Cal Grants and Board of Governor’s Fee Waivers at community colleges as well as institutional aid at California colleges and universities.
