A Scholarship for Dreamers who have the Determination to Succeed in College and Life

Many Dreamers share the American dream of obtaining a college education that will allow them to lift themselves, their families, and their communities out of poverty. Unfortunately, these Dreamers are unable to achieve this dream because they cannot access any federal financial aid and otherwise lack the financial resources to go to college. We want to change that.

 

 

 

The Dream.US Scholarship Program awards scholarships to Dreamers who have DACA or TPS status and who have demonstrated significant unmet financial need and the determination to succeed in college and in life. We recognize that, given life circumstances, a Dreamer’s academic record may not fully reflect the student’s ability to succeed. For this reason, we place greater emphasis on a student’s demonstrated determination to succeed than on a student’s grades and test scores.

 

To apply , eligible students must:

 

1)    Meet AB 540 requirements

 

2)    Have DACA or TPS eligibility

 

3)    Significant Financial Need

 

4)    Show Academic Promise

 

5)    Demonstrate Determination and Perseverance

 

TheDREAM.US is ALSO offering scholarships for students attending the following colleges: 

Evergreen Community College

De Anza College

San Francisco State University

San Jose State University

California State University – East Bay

University California, Santa Cruz
