ACTION REQUIRED
Check your Applicant or Scholar Report in your ISTS Portal and reach out to your new Scholars
Thanks to your efforts, we had a record 1,057 Scholars accept our award. Now we all need to work to ensure they enroll. Please check your applicant or PC Scholar report for a list of those who accepted and check to ensure that they have applied and/or paid their deposits to attend your college. If they have not, please reach out and encourage them to do so. 

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).
Stoles for Spring 2019 Grads
Scholars have been reaching out to us to request stoles. 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. (If you require extra stoles, please email sadhana.singh@thedream.us .)

Please encourage them to join our Alumni Network ( see overview video here).

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