The Dream US

TheDream.US National Scholarship is for highly motivated DREAMers who want nothing more than to get a college education but are unable to afford the cost. They have no access to federal aid, limited access to state aid, and sometimes face paying out-of-state tuition. The Scholarship is for first-time college students or community college graduates only. 

The College of Staten Island (CSI) is proud to be a Partner College of TheDream.US.


You may be eligible to apply if you intend to enroll at CSI; and are a first-time college student or community college graduate who is an immigrant and has applied for or received DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) or TPS (Temporary Protected Status) or meet the past DACA eligibility criteria.


Each year there is a two to three month open period for applications.  Normally you may apply from November 1 through the end of February for the upcoming academic school year.


Scholarships up to $29,000 for two or four-year degrees offered to DREAMers through a CUNY partnership with TheDream.US


You can apply by visiting TheDream.US National Scholarship website.
