During times where the cost of higher education is slipping further and further away from those who need it most, the Catholic Community Foundation has recently formed the DREAM Scholarship Fund to help qualifying immigrant students pay for college tuition. Applications are now being taken for the Fall 2011 semester at the DreamScholarshipFund.com. Scholarship applications are on the website and donors may also contribute through the website as well.

Applicants: Scholarship applications are reviewed by the DREAM Scholarship Fund committee. Eligibility for the scholarship requires that:

The student immigrated to the USA as a child, and is, or will be, a graduate of a High School prior to the start of college classes.
The student must have resided in the state in which he or she is applying for post-secondary education.
The student must have a cumulative high school GPA of 2.0 or higher.
The student must apply and be accepted for admission prior to August 1 to be eligible.

If the recipient fails to carry a minimum of 9 credits per quarter and maintain satisfactory academic progress the award is forfeited from that point forward. Awards will be disbursed twice annually and are paid directly to the college.

The applicant must complete the scholarship application which consists of an essay portion as well. If you meet these qualifications, then you may complete the application and its essays online. Scholarships will be paid directly to the school, which will credit the grant towards the tuition.

Donors: The DREAM Scholarship accepts contributions from corporate and private donors and all donations are used exclusively for scholarship grants. Donors will be provided a giving receipt for tax purposes and will also be updated on who was awarded a scholarship. Any amount greater than $25 is welcome and contributions may be made online, mail or telephone.

DREAM Scholarship information can be found here.

    Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic but I
    needed to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a large amount of work?

    I'm completely new to blogging however I do write
    in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and
    views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!

    like you wrote the ebook in it or something.

    home a bit, however instead of that, that is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I'll definitely be back.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
