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.
