Have you heard the great news?

30 IDEA seniors recently qualified as semifinalists for the nationally renowned Dell Scholarship, which provides students with financial assistance, resources, and mentoring to ensure they have the support they need to obtain a bachelor’s degree.    

About the Dell Scholarship

The Dell Scholars Program is a college completion program for high-performing students in need of financial assistance.  It is an initiative of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, which was established in 1999. The gift was inspired by Michael and Susan’s passion for supporting children’s causes as a way to make an even greater difference in a measurable way.
