In 2016, 1,000 Dreams Fund established our 1,000 Dreams Scholarship Fund, which provides one-time educational assistance for currently enrolled high school, college and graduate school-aged women throughout the United States.
The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships for those “extra costs” which go beyond tuition. This can include assistance for needs including: educational conferences, instructional programs related to creative or artistic pursuits, graduate exam application fees, textbooks and more. The fund annually receive 1,000+ applications from students nationwide.
Over 5 years since the launch of our organization and this scholarship fund, our first and foremost mission is to provide greater access to educational opportunities so that all young women, especially those in most need, may fully realize their potential.
Building on our success inserving thousands of young women in the U.S, 1,000 Dreams Fund is now poised to expand globally with the creation of a 2022 pilot program in India that will focus on serving women pursuing degrees in innovation and technology.
