I Have a Dream Scholarship

It's crazy to think of all the amazing stories that happen as soon as we close our eyes and drift to sleep. It could be in a deep slumber or perhaps in a carefree daze, but our dreams can help shape our ideas, perceptions, and - now - education.

If we had that crazy contraption from "Inception," we could just live the dream with you. But, since we can't, we need you to tell us in our scholarship for dreamers. Did you have a dream that was off-the-wall, or maybe it was so real that you didn't know you were dreaming? Maybe you dream of a successful future or reaching your goals. Whatever your dreams might be, they could help you towards getting a scholarship for your college education.

Scholarships don't have to exist in your rich reveries. Let your dreams be your muse - and your ticket to free money for school. One "dreamer" in our I Have a Dream Scholarship Scholarship will receive $1,500 to help make his or her educational dream come true.

Applicants must:

  • Be thirteen (13) years of age or older at the time of application
  • Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia
  • Be currently enrolled (or enroll no later than the fall of 2026) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education

Submit an online written response to the question:
"We want to know... what do you dream about? Whether it's some bizarre dream you had last week, or your hopes for the future, share your dreams with us for a chance to win $1,500 for college." (250 words or less)
Application Deadline: 1/31/2020
Award: $1,500
