Scholarship America's Dream Award has been established to assist students from across the nation entering their second year or higher of education beyond high school. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student's choice. The awards will grow in amount each year, allowing students to receive aid throughout their college careers.

The program will be accepting applications from August 15, 2019 through October 15, 2019. Thanks for your interest in the program!

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation's largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin.

Annual Amount

The number of awards granted will depend on the amount of funds available each year.  If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $5,000 to $15,000.  Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor's degree is earned, whichever comes first.  Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study.  Each year of eligible renewal, the award will increase by $1,000.
