TheDream.US Scholarship Program

This is an amazing opportunity for you to receive an affordable college education!

TheDream.US scholarships are 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 Opportunity Scholarship for students in "Locked out states" offers up to $80,000 over four years to help you obtain your bachelor’s degree at one of TheDream.US partner colleges — which includes CBU. This scholarship will help cover tuition, fees, and on-campus housing and meals for four years, at up to $20,000 per year. TheDream.US is the nation’s largest college access and success program for DREAMers.
