Website: The Dream US - The National Scholarship
We think of our National Scholarship as the “Pell Grant” for highly motivated DREAMers with significant, unmet financial need. While we consider your GPA and test scores, we place great emphasis on your demonstrated ability to overcome the barriers and challenges that DREAMers face each and every day.
The National Scholarship Award will cover your tuition and fees up to $16,500 for an associate’s or up to $33,000 for a bachelor’s degree, at one of our Partner Colleges. Please note, some Scholars may be eligible for an additional stipend of up to $4,000 (or $1,000 per year) for books, supplies, and transportation.
The Award is renewable each year – you simply have to meet the continuing eligibility criteria – including continuous full-time enrollment (more than 12 credits per term) and a college GPA of 3.0. If you struggle, your Scholar Advisor will be there to help you get back on track.
NOTE: If you do not have DACA or TPS, you can still apply for our scholarship if you meet our immigration eligibility criteria (which mirror the DACA eligibility criteria). You will need to certify this as a part of the application.
