The Dream Award - Scholarship America

The Dream Award Dream Award: Now Accepting Applications


A Student in Motion Stays in Motion.

The Scholarship America Dream Award is designed to help you keep moving toward a degree, by providing a scholarship that sticks with you for up to four total years. College undergraduates can earn renewable awards of up to $10,000 per year.

We believe in tearing down the barriers to a college degree — and that’s why the Dream Award is a scholarship open to all. Your ethnicity, family history, school access, gender, sexual orientation or immigration status should not be an impediment to attending college and pursuing your dreams.

Who Can Apply?

If you’re at least 17, a current college undergraduate from any state in the U.S. or high school senior from Bayfield WI or Cleveland MN, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent), and plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study next year, you’re invited to apply.

The Dream Award is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents (holders of a Permanent Resident card), or individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).

Our Dream Award Scholars have overcome incredible challenges ranging from family tragedies to physical struggles to systematic inequities. We are proud to support their educational dreams — and if you’re struggling to pay for college, we encourage you to learn more about eligibility details.
