Annual scholarships make the difference for undocumented Virginia students.
Arlington, VA.- The Dream Project is proud to present its annual Scholarship Award Ceremony, taking place this June at Wakefield High School.
The Scholarship Award Ceremony, which is free and open to the general public, returns for the first in-person celebration in two years, bringing together program participants with their families, alumni, mentors, and donors to mark the occasion.
This year, the Dream Project marks its 12th annual scholarship program by honoring 100 students. The annual scholarships are given out to undocumented students in Virginia who have exceled academically.
For each of these students, the scholarships —along with other Dream Project services including mentoring, scholar support programs, and community advocacy— are integral to helping them earn their college degree.
This year, the Dream Project has increased its individual scholarship awards from $2,500 to a record $3,000 per student. These renewable academic scholarships are made possible through loyal supporters and Named Scholarship donors.
