Dell Scholars Program

The Dell Scholars Program enables more under-served students with financial need to achieve their greatest potential through higher education. The Dell Scholars Program is offered to those high school students participating in an approved AVID program. The funding for each Dell Scholar is substantial - $20,000. The value of these 250 scholarships equals $5 million.
