Description: Scholarship America’s Dream Award is a renewable scholarship to help with completion. Awards will be given to students entering their second year or higher of education beyond high school. Award amounts will grow each year, helping ensure that students can afford to complete 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 be considered in determining award amounts.
