Dream.US thinks of their National Scholarship as the “Pell Grant” for highly motivated undocumented students with significant, unmet financial need. While they consider your GPA, a greater emphasis is placed on your demonstrated commitment to community service and your ability to overcome the barriers and challenges that undocumented students face each and every day.
Applications are open to undocumented immigrant students with or without DACA or TPS who came to the U.S. before the age of 16 and before Nov. 1, 2017. The award is renewable each year – you simply have to meet the continuing eligibility criteria. Dream.US has more than 80 Partner Colleges across the United States that are committed to serving undocumented students and prepared to offer you the support services you need to help you successfully navigate your college life. Each of their Partner Colleges designates a Scholar Advisor to work with you and your fellow Scholars – individually and as a group. You will not be alone!
