Scholarship For Dreamers

TheDream.US Opportunity Scholarship Program is offering scholarships to highly motivated DREAMers** with DACA or TPS status who live in targeted states that have effectively locked DREAMers out of their colleges by requiring DREAMers to pay out-of-state tuition or prohibiting DREAMers from enrolling in the state’s colleges and universities all together.

The Governors of Connecticut and Delaware have agreed to accept out-of-state DREAMers with TheDream.US Opportunity Scholarship to attend an affordable four-year college in their state at a targeted cost of $20,000 per year for tuition, fees, and on-campus housing and meals. TheDream.US Scholarship award will pay up to $20,000 per year to fund these costs. 

TheDream.US Opportunity Scholarship is for DREAMers who:
      • Have DACA or TPS status;
      • Live in and have graduated from high schools in targeted locked-out states, and
      • Have demonstrated the academic potential and a determination to succeed in college and in life.
Eligibility Criteria 

This scholarship is available to high school seniors, high school graduates, community college students, or community college graduates who seek to earn a career-ready bachelor’s degree at one of our Partner Colleges in Connecticut or Delaware.  Students who are currently enrolled in college are not eligible.

      • Live in and have graduated from a high school in a targeted locked-out state listed above;
