National Dreams to Success Awards | Event Sponsorship

Sponsor the Year’s Most Inspiring Night!

On May 24, Scholarship America held our third annual celebration of college students and those who help make their success a reality. Last year’s event raised nearly half a million dollars for students. Our sponsors were a vital part of that success, and we invite you to join us next year at the 2018 National Dreams to Success Awards!

Read the details and sponsorship benefits below; a new Sponsorship Overview will be available in early 2018 for download.

Sponsor a student. Change a life.

In addition to your event sponsorship or ticket purchase, for $5,000 you can sponsor a life-changing, day-long experience in Washington, D.C. for scholarship recipients, including visits and meetings with policy leaders at the United States House of Representatives, the Senate and the White House — along with attendance at the National Dreams to Success Awards.

Sarah Ashcraft, a Dream Award scholarship winner, was able to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime experience in 2015 saying, “I want to be a school psychologist after I graduate as well as an activist for education, so to get to do some of that with all these powerful people in the room was so awesome,” Ashcraft said. “I felt like a lot of doors opened for me on this trip.”
