WHAT SETS DELL SCHOLARS APART
Our program includes a support network made up of students, peer mentors, and the Dell Scholars staff to help our scholars succeed. We created a financial award that is very flexible, so Scholars can use their award money for the many costs that arise during their college career. We offer an online community to meet Scholars where they are connect them with fellow Scholars. We are constantly evolving our program to serve our Scholars all the way to college graduation.
Today, the Dell Scholars program offers personalized, multifaceted support to our Scholars that extends beyond the financial support of $20,000, a laptop, and textbook credits. We offer students and their families services and solutions to address individual and systemic issues that can create major barriers to student success.
OUR GPA: GRIT, POTENTIAL & AMBITION
While we have a required 2.4 grade point average, Dell Scholars targets low-income, highly motivated students who are better than their numbers indicate and demonstrate the drive to succeed despite personal obstacles. Our Scholars have demonstrated a unique "GPA" of grit, potential, and ambition in their quest for a college education:
Grit by overcoming personal challenges in their lives related to their families, schools, or communities
Potential by participating in college readiness programs and seeking out academic rigor
Ambition by dreaming of obtaining a college degree
