The DREAMers Education Initiative, first initiated by Kaplan and now part of Purdue University Global, is designed to give highly motivated DREAMers the opportunity to reach their educational goals. It’s affordable, career-focused, and provides the personalized student support services DREAMers need to succeed.
The DREAMers Education Initiative offers students:
Career-focused college degrees—high-quality, low-tuition, accessible higher education
Flexibility—online degree programs that provide students the flexibility they need to balance their obligations and busy lives with their coursework
Support—student support services structured specifically for DREAMers
Scholarship—financial assistance through scholarships from TheDream.US
Eligible DREAMers receive funding through scholarships that are awarded by TheDream.US to attend one of the partner colleges. The DREAMers Education Initiative provides additional support to help DREAMers succeed, including tutoring and career services.
