How Winners are Selected

We have a rigorous application review process that includes analysis and scoring of applicants grades, standardized test scores, participation in advanced courses, extracurricular activities including volunteer work and community service and essays. ISTS reviews and scores all complete and eligible applications. An independent Scholarship Selection Committee made up of national education leaders, leaders of immigration support services organizations, and DREAMers reviews and scores the essays of all finalists. Scholarships are allocated across our Partner Colleges and are awarded to the highest scoring applicants to that college.
