If you are chosen as a DREAM Scholar, you must be accepted to and eligible for in-state tuition (if applicable) at one of our Partner Colleges in order to receive the Scholarship. The in-state tuition requirement does not apply to DREAM Scholars who attend one of our private Partner Colleges or Kaplan University, as there are no residency restrictions for these colleges. Scholars who wish to attend ASU Online must live in Arizona.

Private Colleges Scholarship Program
TheDream.US has partnered with three selective private colleges to support a limited number of highly talented Dreamers in pursuing an exceptional liberal arts education, irrespective of their family’s ability to pay. Each of these the colleges listed below will nominate Dreamers from their college applicant pool to be considered for TheDream.US Scholarship. If you are a high academic performer and you are interested in attending one of these 3 selective private Partner Colleges, we encourage you to apply to the college before the January 2016 application deadlines. After you have submitted your application to the college, please send an email to the contact listed below and let them know that you are a DACA student who has applied for admission to the college and that you would like to be considered for nomination for TheDream.US Scholarship Program. The college will let you know if it has nominated you to apply for TheDream.US Scholarship. If you receive the Scholarship but are not accepted to the college or choose not to attend, you will be able to use the Scholarship at any of our other Partner Colleges (assuming you are eligible for in-state tuition and accepted to the college).
