“About the Dream Award

The Dream Award is Scholarship America’s renewable scholarship program for financially needy students who have overcome barriers and have successfully started their college education. Awards were made to students selected from across the nation who are entering their second year or higher of education beyond high school; the scholarships are both renewable and increase in amount each year. Scholarship America provides Dream Awards ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 based on the individual student’s financial need. Each student’s award will increase by $1,000 each year to help them successfully finish school and earn their degrees.

Dream Award scholarships include general scholarships, STEM-specific scholarships (for study in science, technology, engineering and math-related majors) and the World Journal Dream Award Scholarship for Chinese American students. Financial need will always be considered in determining award amounts.
