Dream.US Scholarship Info Session

CUNY BMCC is hosting an info session for their Dream.US scholarship program on October 26, 2021 at 2:00 PM. In advance of the November launch of the scholarship, this presentation will give practitioners an overview of the application process and identify some of the pitfalls applicants and awardees face. This would be a great opportunity to field questions and concerns specific to students who are Dreamers, regarding entering CUNY or community colleges. In addition, this event will detail BMCC application support and go through checkpoints before a scholar steps into their first class. Registration is now open.
