TheDream.US is a new multimillion dollar National Scholarship Fund for DREAMers, created to help immigrant youth who have received DACA to achieve their American Dream through the completion of a college education.
THEDREAM.US provides college scholarships to highly motivated DREAMers who, without financial aid, cannot afford a college education that will enable them to participate in the American workforce.
The Dream.US believes the cost of a college education should not preclude highly motivated DREAMers with the commitment and desire to succeed from going to college. The Dream.US is the Pell Grant for DREAMers. Based on this belief and the need, the Dream.US has created a fund that provides DREAMers with scholarships for quality, affordable college educations that lead to career-ready degrees. The goal is to enable over 2,000 highly motivated, low-income, DREAMers to graduate with career-ready degrees over the course of the next decade.
We love to support and grow the nation's burgeoning class of entrepreneurs.

Also, by creating a unique business plan infographic for their scholarship entries young business dreamers can build upon and practice the skills that will be required of them at their jobs after college. In short, we envision our Scholarship Program as not only an award that will help students in the present, but a test that will help them hone in on their future career paths.
