SCHOLARSHIP PROFILE

Scholarship America/Scholarship America Dream Award

Scholarship America's Dream Award is to assist students across the nation entering their second year or higher of education beyond high school. Renewable scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student's choice with the awards growing in amount each year, allowing students to receive aid throughout their college careers. To qualify, students must be 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), have received a high school diploma or equivalent from a U.S. school, and be planning to complete a minimum of one full year of postsecondary education by the end of the 2016-17 academic year. Applicants must plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at the sophomore-year level or higher at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school in the United States for the entire 2017-18 academic year, and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent). Applicants must demonstrate financial need. In addition to the general awards, a portion of the funds has been designated for students majoring in a STEM field (science, technology, engineering or math) and a portion has been designated the World Journal Award for Chinese-American students.
