Subject: [TheDream.US] Welcome to TheDream.US Family!
Dear TheDream.US Scholar,
Congratulations and welcome to TheDream.US family! You’ve received this award because we believe in your ability to succeed in college. Now, we ask you to pay close attention to all the information given on this email—we encourage you to save this email and/or print it out.
Step 1- When you accepted the scholarship, you made several commitments regarding your education and “paying it forward.” Please take some time to read over your commitments: http://bit.ly/ScholarCommitments
Step 2- Read over your Scholar Program Guide. Everything that you need to know about the scholarship, the award amount, receiving your award, renewing it…etc. is in your Scholar Program Guide. Make sure to go over it, read it, and learn it—most, if not all your questions, are answered on your guide. http://bit.ly/ScholarTools
Step 3- Join our Scholar Facebook community and our Text Messaging system.

Step 4- Introduce yourself by email to your Scholar and Financial Aid advisor. You can find the directory with your Partner College’s information here: http://bit.ly/ScholarTools
Step 5- Save the date for your mandatory New Scholar Orientation, which will be on August 2nd, 2017 at 4 PM EDT/3 PM CDT/1 PM PDT. The orientation is online; however, some colleges usually invite their Scholars to come on campus and watch the orientation together—plan accordingly.
As you embark in this new journey, remember that we are here to help and support you succeed. See you all on Aug. 2nd.
