TheDream.Us provides college scholarships to high school seniors who have DACATPS, or meet the DACA eligibility criteria. This scholarship covers tuition and fees up to a maximum of $16,500 for an associate’s degree at Arrupe College and $33,000 for a bachelor’s degree at Dominican University, Lewis University, National Louis University, Northeastern Illinois University, and UIC (for community college graduates only). Additionally, these schools close the gap between TheDream.Us award and the cost of tuition and fees.

Once again this year, a Big Shoulders Fund supporter has pledged a donation to TheDream.Us for five of these scholarships, which are restricted for graduates of Big Shoulders Fund high schools or students who are Big Shoulders Fund scholars. 

The deadline to apply is February 27, 2020.  The application and program information can be found at
