Washington, DC – TheDream.US, the nation’s largest college access and success program for immigrant youth, has opened its new Scholarship round for the 2021-2022 academic year. The organization’s expanded eligibility criteria opens applications to DREAMers who have DACA, TPS or who came to the country before November 1, 2015 and otherwise meet the DACA eligibility criteria.
The new scholarship round includes eligibility for North Carolina immigrant youth and other students who live in targeted, locked-out states where they cannot access in-state tuition. The Opportunity Scholarship provides up to $80,000 for these students to cover tuition, fees, and on-campus housing and meals for a bachelor’s degree at one of four out-of-state colleges which are dedicated to supporting the higher education needs of DREAMers: Christian Brothers University in Tennessee, Delaware State University, Eastern Connecticut State University, and Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC. TheDream.US has awarded 633 Opportunity Scholarships in total, including 184 to students from North Carolina.
