The Point Roberts chapter of Dollars for Scholars is encouraging local post-secondary students to apply for the Dream Award scholarship through its parent organization Scholarship America.
“This is an incredible opportunity for students who are looking for additional scholarship money for their second year of post-secondary education and beyond,” said chapter secretary and treasurer Linda Hughes.
The Dream Award is a “renewable scholarship program for financially needy students who have overcome barriers and have successfully started their college education,” according to the Scholarship America website. Award amounts range from $5,000 to $15,000 depending on need and increase by $1,000 each year to help students finish their degree or certificate programs.
