    Dell Scholars
     We are excited to announce the opening of the 2012-2013 Dell Scholars Program scholarship application. With this cohort we will select 300 of the top students across the nation that exemplify what it means to be a Dell  Scholar. These are students that have overcome great personal adversity in their family and personal lives while demonstrating their desire to be college ready by taking a rigorous course load in high school. The Dell Scholars program looks beyond the "numbers" in terms of GPA and does not include standardized test scores in the selection process. 
    We understand the challenges many low income students face and look to evaluate how these students have overcome personal challenges while staying focused on their goal  to be prepared to enroll in college and attain a four year college degree. The Dell Scholars application is designed so students can share with us their desire to complete a  bachelor's degree and tell us who they are and how they have managed to stay focused in school while managing life's challenges. 
    In its essence the Dell Scholars Program is a college completion program that includes a significant financial award, but we are more than a check.  The program empowers students  develop their problem solving skills to cope with challenges and identify the right choices for action.
    We know many of the students you work with match the description of a Dell Scholar and encourage you to have them apply.  
    Please visit us at www.dellscholars.org for a complete overview of the program and application process. Be sure to check out the 'Meet the Dell Scholars' section for a video overview and hear directly from our Dell Scholars.   If you have questions please visit the contact us page.  In addition to contacting us you can also look through the Frequently Asked Questions link to find answers to the most common inquiries.  We look forward to working with you and your students.
