DACA Students Wouldn’t Have Made it Without This Scholarship Program

What’s the point of having a dream if you don’t have the resources to make it happen? 

For thousands of youth currently protected by the DACA and TPS program, organizations like TheDream.Us are crucial when it comes to accessing higher education to secure a successful future.

TheDream.US currently supports over 3,300 Dreamers across the United States and have helped over 300 students attain their Bachelors at participating Partner Colleges, including Arizona State University, San Jose State University, Olgethorpe University, Rutgers University, CUNY, University of Washington, and much more. According to their website, without TheDream.US, millions would be refused federal funding and be forced to pay out-of-state tuition. 

Currently, the organization has $141 million in scholarships committed to date and $60 million in scholarship awards paid out as of Fall 2018.
