Gov. Jerry Brown will sign Assembly Bill 130, one of two "Dream Act" bills, this afternoon, Brown's office confirmed.
The bill, passed by the Senate this month, would allow undocumented immigrants who live in California to apply for scholarships funded with private donations.
The more significant Dream Act bill, Assembly Bill 131, would make undocumented students eligible for public financial aide. The Senate has yet to vote on that measure, which Brown also is expected to sign.
The Democratic governor is expected to sign Assembly Bill 130 at an event in Los Angeles this afternoon.
