Scholarships help DREAMS come true
DREAM Scholars are resilient community college students, determined to reach their goals and lift up their communities. Each year we honor eight of these leaders with a scholarship that is awarded at our annual convening, DREAM.

DREAM Scholars program
The DREAM Scholars program is an experiential learning opportunity for community college students designed to enhance leadership, critical thinking, and networking skills. Every year, up to eight DREAM Scholars are selected through a competitive application process to participate in a learning experience that culminates in attending and sharing their experiences at DREAM, our annual convening.
DREAM Scholars are nominated from across the ATD Network of community colleges and selected for their leadership, initiative, and commitment to improving higher education.
Students are at the center of our work.
Our network of more than 300 community colleges improves outcomes for more than 4 million students as we partner with institutions to strengthen their capacity as profoundly accessible hubs of equitable learning, credentialing, and economic opportunity.
