1,000 Dreams Fund provides microgrants to young women across the country pursuing all types of awesome, challenging, empowering professional dreams. From future dentists to aspiring UN ambassadors, our applicants are highly-motivated leaders in the making.

If you’re a current high school, college or graduate school-aged woman with a career goal that inspires, drives and even scares you, you may be the perfect fit for one of our microgrants.

“I used the funding to help fund my plane ticket expenses for studying abroad. One round trip ticket to Bishkek costs upwards of $2,000. My dream is to help with international issues. Unless I have significant time in a foreign country, Kyrgyzstan, and learning a foreign language, Russian, I would be ill-equipped to meet that goal.”

The 1,000 Dreams Fund Twitch BroadcastHER Grant provides financial assistance to eligible women to help with expenses such as travel to gaming conventions, educational conferences, hardware upgrades, and instructional programs related to creative or artistic pursuits. This grant is not intended for everyday expenses (e.g., utility bills, food costs) or costs related to medical care.
