Thousands of DREAMers want nothing more than the opportunity to get a college education.

At TheDream.US, we work with a community of partners to provide that opportunity.

We Believe Dreamers Should Fulfill Their College Dreams

At TheDream.US, we’re working to help over 4,000 highly motivated DREAMers graduate from college with career-ready degrees. DREAMers are immigrant youth who came to this country at a very young age without documentation.

Despite the fact that this is the only country they have ever known––they’ll receive no federal aid to go to college, have limited access to state aid, and often face paying out-of-state tuition.

And We Dream Big

TheDream.US is the nation’s largest college access and success program for DREAMers. We believe that all that DREAMers need is an opportunity. And all we need to do is provide them with financial support to attend one of our Partner Colleges, committed to their college completion.

Together We Can Address It

We provide scholarships to highly-qualified DREAMers to help them pay for their college education. Our Scholars have DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) or TPS (Temporary Protected Status) that allows them to live and legally work in the United States.
