DREAM Scholarship

Scholarships for DREAMers logoTheDream.US is a national scholarship fund for DREAMers. They provide college scholarships to highly motivated DREAMers who have DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) or TPS (Temporary Protected Status) approval and who, without financial aid, cannot afford a college education that will enable them to participate in the American workforce.

Mt. SAC is hosting application workshops, including scholarship advising assistance, for interested students.  For a list of workshop dates, times and locations - click here.
