The Scholarship provides up to $80,000 to cover tuition, fees, and on-campus housing and meals for a bachelor’s degree at one of five out-of-state colleges – Christian Brothers University in Tennessee; Delaware State University; Dominican University in Illinois; Eastern Connecticut State University; or Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC. The awarded recipients have until April 4, 2024 to accept the award and to officially join the next class of TheDream.US Opportunity Scholars.

Abraham says of the Opportunity Scholarship: “It can certainly change your life in a positive manner. These scholarships do wonders and help you a lot, mentally and financially. They take a big weight off your shoulders.”
