2017 DREAM Scholars Application

Application deadline:  October 3 by 5:00 pm ET

Achieving the Dream’s DREAM Scholars program is an experiential learning opportunity for six student leaders from active Achieving the Dream Network institutions looking to make a difference on their campus and in their communities. Students will engage with student success and reform efforts both at their institution and across the Achieving the Dream National Reform Network, learning key insights on how students can partner with their institutions to become active campus change agents. 


Chosen through a competitive application process, selected students will engage in a learning process that culminates in attending and presenting at DREAM 2017 in San Francisco, CA from February 21-24, 2017. Students will be led by Dr. Joye Hardiman, Emeritus Faculty, The Evergreen State College, who will engage students in learning opportunities before and during DREAM.
