 Frequently Asked Questions
- Most questions are answered within the application itself. Please read the application carefully.
- What is the scholarship award amount?
- The scholarship amount is a one-time award of $1,000.
- I will be using the scholarship for graduate/law/medical school. Can I apply?
- No. Only high school seniors to undergraduate juniors may apply.
- What do you mean by “accredited college”?
- When a college is “accredited,” it means that it has been reviewed and programs have been evaluated for quality. The accreditation is usually done by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or the United States Department of Education (USDE). All public universities, community colleges and most private universities are accredited. Do not worry about whether or not your college or university is accredited or not – most likely they are and if there are any concerns we will contact you.
- How do I prove that I am Asian American or Pacific Islander?
- You only need to identify yourself as Asian American or Pacific Islander.
- Do I have to send in my FAFSA and my parent’s tax returns?
- Only if you have your FAFSA and/or your parent’s tax returns. If you do not have your FAFSA or parent’s tax returns, just fill out the “Household Financial Information” worksheet in the application (page 4).
- I don’t know which college I want to go to. Do I have to send in the tuition information for all the colleges I got into?
- No. Just choose one and send the tuition information for that college.
- Do I have to provide a copy of my SAT score?
- Submitting your SAT score is optional.
- If I become the scholarship recipient, when will I receive the scholarship money?
- Please consult with each individual center.
- Will the scholarship recipient list be made public?
- We want to have some form of public announcement (press conference, awards ceremony, etc.) with the goal of encouraging next year’s applicants to apply, and ask the community to help fund the scholarship. Since the Dream Scholarship is supported by the community, we do the publicity in order to be transparent and accountable to those who helped fund the scholarship. However, we will respect your privacy and remove your name (or use a pseudonym) if you request it.
