Stoles for Spring 2019 Grads
If you submitted a Spring 2019 Grad List, please let your Scholars know when and where to pick up their stole and other graduation memorabilia.

Please encourage them to join our Alumni Network ( see overview video here ). Sign up takes only a few minutes and can be done on their phone.

*If a graduate really does not wish to join the Alumni Network, you may still give them a stole.

MUST KNOW
National Scholarship Awards Announced; Acceptance deadline May 3rd
Last Thursday was an exciting day for TheDream.US. We sent emails to over 1,200 DREAMers telling them that they have been awarded TheDream.US National Scholarship and as of this morning, 581 of awardees have accepted the scholarship.

Scholars must accept the scholarship by Friday, May 3, 2019, to receive the award. We encourage you to reach out to the Scholars to congratulate them, encourage them to accept the award, and offer any assistance they might need in enrolling in your institutions. 

You can determine which of your awardees have accepted the Scholarship by running the ISTS TheDream.US National Applicant Report, using these filters: 
- Program: “TheDream.US National Scholarship Program (2019-20)” 
- Status: “Winners” 
- Report Key: Enter your Report Key
- Once you run and download the report in excel, you will be able to filter on those who have accepted, declined, or not yet responded (Column BA).

Note: please do not publicly announce the number of Scholars who have received the award to attend your college until AFTER the May 3rd acceptance deadline.
