  • TheDream.US
    TheDream.US, is working to help 6,000 highly motivated DREAMers graduate from college with career-ready degrees. DREAMers are immigrant youth who came to this country at a very young age without documentation.
    Despite the fact that this is the only country they have ever known they’ll receive no federal aid to go to college, have limited access to state aid, and often face paying out-of-state tuition.
    TheDream.US is the nation’s largest college access and success program for DREAMers. We believe that all that DREAMers need is an opportunity. And all we need to do is provide them with financial support to attend one of our Partner Colleges, committed to their college completion.
