Dream Project Scholarship

We are currently NOT accepting applications for the Dream Project Scholarship! The application period will open again in December 2019. Please sign up to be notified of when the application period opens here

Successful applicants are students whose immigration status (such as undocumented, DACA, TPS, Asylum Applicants) create barriers to access higher education. To be eligible to apply, students must:

  • Graduated or will graduate from a Virginia high school;
  • Were born outside of the United States and whose immigration status (undocumented, DACA, TPS, Asylum Applicant) creates barriers to access and success in college.
  • Will attend an accredited two- or four-year college or university.

Students must first apply for the scholarship online. Applicants are asked to submit their most recent high school and/or college transcripts along with two letters of recommendation. Selected applicants will be invited to interview with a panel of Dream Project board members and community members. Applications and interviews are evaluated based on students’ demonstration of academic achievement, leadership, community involvement, and perseverance and persistence in the face of adversity.

Previous years’ Dream Project Scholars are allowed to submit a shorter renewal application that demonstrates their good academic standing and their progress toward a degree and may have their interview requirement waived.
