The Dell Scholars Program places greater emphasis on a student's determination to succeed than just academic record and test scores. We reward low-income, highly motivated students who are better than their numbers indicate and demonstrate the drive to succeed despite personal obstacles. Students must participate in a Michael & Susan Dell Foundation approved college readiness program in grades 11 and 12, graduate from an accredited high school this academic year and earn a minimum 2.4 GPA.
Students must also demonstrate financial need, be eligible to receive a Federal Pell grant in their first year of college and plan to enroll full-time in a bachelor's degree program at an accredited higher education institution in the fall directly after graduation from high school. Nationally, 500 Dell Scholars are selected each year to receive a scholarship plus lots of non-monetary supports. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
