As Jesus, a TheDream.US Scholar and 2020 graduate of Arizona State University, told us: “Thanks to TheDream.US I was able to attend college, graduate, and get a job in a high paying career field. I am now a Software Engineer working for one of the largest tech companies in the world and I am able to not only provide for myself and my wife, but I am able to take care of any financial troubles my parents endure. This was a truly life changing award and I am forever grateful.”
According to Cinthya, a TheDream.US Scholar and 2020 graduate of Dominican University: “I would have never been given the opportunities and blessings I have received without TheDream.US! I was able to attend a four year university and was able to learn so much in those four years! My parents wouldn’t have been able to give me this same opportunity and I will be forever thankful to this program because my life has been greatly impacted by the help I’ve received.”
According to Ismary, a TheDream.US Scholar and 2019 graduate of John Jay College of Criminal Justice: “TheDream.US has been a fundamental base for achieving my dream of higher education. The knowledge and widened world view I was able to gain from my college journey was amplified by the fact that TheDream.US made it clear with their ongoing support that they believe in me and my potential regardless of my immigration status. Knowing there was a group of people continuously looking for ways to help me and support me gave me strength and determination to graduate and the inspiration to help my community in whichever ways I can.”
