Sponsor A National Celebration of Education!

On May 22, 2018, Scholarship America will be hosting Dreams to Success: our biggest ever annual celebration of college students and their champions. 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 for the 2018 event at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C.
