We are the Dream Project


The Dream Project empowers students whose immigration status creates barriers to higher education, starting in high school, through college graduation and into professional life. Students are supported through mentoring, scholarships, family engagement and a strong network. This start-up nonprofit organization has created an intentional and inclusive community where students are encouraged through education to pursue their dreams and achieve their full potential.

Support the Dream Project


When the Dream Project began, undocumented students struggled to find support and funding for pursuing a college education. Through the generous donations of community members, the Dream Project has empowered hundreds of immigrant students and their families to overcome the barriers they face because of their immigration status.



When I received the Dream Project Scholarship… I sat in silence for a good 20 minutes. I couldn’t believe it… I felt as if it was a sign from the universe that … I would make it through.
