The DWHF Scholars Program supports outstanding Black and Latinx college students in S.T.E.A.M. (Science. Technology. Engineering. Arts. Math). We want to help even more students from racially marginalized backgrounds graduate with S.T.E.A.M. degrees and pursue S.T.E.A.M. careers.
What is included in the Scholars Program?
Book Stipend: College students spend about $1200 on textbooks each year (above and beyond tuition and fees). Close to 70% of students admit they have avoided buying a book for a class. Dream with Hope Scholars will receive up to $500 worth of required books & course material per semester (renewable for up to 8 semesters).
Job & Career Networking: College students often need guidance and networking to secure jobs and careers after graduation. Dream with Hope Scholars will receive S.T.E.A.M. Career Counseling, Grad School Coaching, Job Interview Prep, and Professional Development Workshops from industry professionals.
Annual Scholars Dinner: Dream with Hope Scholars will meet regularly to network and celebrate our accomplishments!
Community Outreach: Giving back to the community is a key to success. Dream with Hope Scholars will participate in community outreach that encourages S.T.E.A.M. learning for younger students from marginalized backgrounds.
