Dell Scholarship

Dell Scholars is a scholarship and college-completion program that nurtures and empowers students on their path to a college degree. Since starting the program in 2004, the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation has supported more than 4,300 scholars, including more than 2,000 college graduates. Nationally, only 20 percent of students like our Dell Scholars graduate from college within six years, but our scholars are changing that reality by graduating with a bachelor’s degree at 80 percent in six years.
Our GPA requirement for the Dell Scholars program is Grit, Potential, and Ambition. Most Dell Scholars are first-generation college students who have demonstrated grit by overcoming personal challenges in their lives related to their families, schools or communities. They demonstrate great potential by participating in college readiness programs and seeking out advanced coursework. They demonstrate ambition by preparing themselves and planning for their dream of graduating with a college degree.
