$20,000 Dell Scholars

Finding the right scholarship for you based on your capabilities can be like finding a needle in a hay stack.

Someone needs to consider a lot of things in pursuing their college education and getting the right degree program based on, first and foremost, their financial capability.

It is always has been the question that needs an answer because as we know, many qualified and well-deserved students end up choosing to take a leave rather than pursuing their college education simply because they cannot afford it.

We’ve seen this kind of scenario over the years and it’s great to know that there are a lot of institutions and foundations are taking their step forward to help these well-deserved students.

One of those is Dell Scholars.

The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation created Dell Scholars to recognize and assist an underserved population—students in the academic middle from low-income households who are often among the first in their families to attend college. All Dell Scholars have overcome significant personal challenges in their pursuit of higher education.

Their program includes a support network made up of students, peer mentors, and the Dell Scholars staff to help our scholars succeed. They created a financial award that is very flexible, so Scholars can use their award money for the many costs that arise during their college career.

Today, the Dell Scholars program offers personalized, multifaceted support to their Scholars that extends beyond the financial support of $20,000, a laptop, and textbook credits.

To qualify for an application, the applicant should earn a minimum of 2.4 GPA. They must participate in a program-approved college readiness program in grades 11 and 12. They should also have a plan to enroll at an accredited higher education institution in the pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in the fall directly following high school graduation and last but not the least, they should be eligible to receive a federal Pell Grant in first year of college and demonstrate a need for financial assistance.

The first step to application is completing the online application to become Dell Scholar. Once submitted, all applications will be assessed, and a group of Dell Scholar semifinalists will be selected.

The details and sample application questions can be accessed at https://www.dellscholars.org/scholarship/. They also have FAQs in the website to help you answer your basic queries.

The university commences on September 1, 2019. If this application finds favor with you, please, let me know, so that I may communication with the University Admission Desk, for them to process my application.
