We believe that all students regardless of legal status should have the same opportunity to pursue the “American Dream” and become the first in their families to be college graduates. Our vision is to bring hope to all those students who think there is no path for them after high school to continue their higher education. We want to be able to bridge the gap of lack of financial aid when transitioning to college for all undocumented students.
At TheDream.US, we’re working to help over 4,000 highly motivated DREAMers graduate from college with career-ready degrees.
