Dell Scholars Program


Scholarship Value: $20,000
Awards Available: 300

IT TAKES MORE THAN FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO REACH COLLEGE GRADUATION. That's why Dell Scholars was designed to provide a support system for the challenges many students face while pursuing a degree. Even so, we recognize that college costs can be a significant burden for many students and their families. Nationally, 500 Dell Scholars are selected each year to receive a scholarship plus lots of non-monetary supports. All Dell Scholars receive:

A) A $20,000 scholarship

B) Personalized, multifaceted support for the academic, financial, and emotional life challenges that may prevent students from completing college

C) A laptop with 4-year warranty

D) Chegg credits ($500 annually for four years) to be used for textbook purchases and rentals and/or textbook solutions (via Chegg Study)

E) A Scholars Resource Network that connects students and their families with resources to deal with stress, debt, managing child care, and life circumstance

F) A teletherapy service that connects students to professional counseling

SCHOLARSHIP CRITERIA

A) Participate in a program-approved college readiness program in grades 11 and 12

B) Be on track to graduate from an accredited high school in the current academic year

C) Demonstrate a need for financial assistance

D) Be eligible to receive a federal Pell Grant in first year of college

E) Plan to enroll full time at an accredited higher education institution in the pursuit of a bachelor's degree in the fall directly following high school graduation

F) Earn a minimum of a 2.4 GPA

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

While we have a required 2.4 grade point average, Dell Scholars targets low-income, highly motivated students who are better than their numbers indicate and demonstrate the drive to succeed despite personal obstacles. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a unique "GPA" of grit, potential, and ambition in their quest for a college education:

1) GRIT - by overcoming personal challenges in their lives related to their families, schools, or communities

2) POTENTIAL - by participating in college readiness programs and seeking out academic rigor

3) AMBITION - by preparing themselves and planning for their dream of graduating with a college degree
