CONGRATULATIONS, you’ve been invited to enter the Garden of Dreams Inspire Scholarship Program. For the 2022 program, we will be awarding twelve (12) $10,000 scholarships to High School Seniors and six (6) scholarships to College Freshmen. Each scholarship may be renewed for up to three (3) or two (2) years respectively provided the student continues to adhere to the eligibility requirements as communicated by or on behalf of the Garden of Dreams Foundation (for example: maintaining a certain minimum GPA).

This program was designed to give high school seniors financial assistance specifically to advance their educations and realize their dreams. In the past, the Inspire Scholarship was only available to high school seniors that were invited to enter by a Garden of Dreams partner organization. For this year only, we are pleased to announce that for the 2022 program, current college freshmen who are invited to enter by a Garden of Dreams partner organization can also apply.

If the student remains eligible, scholarships awarded to high school seniors may be renewed up to three years and scholarships awarded to college freshmen may be renewed up to two years.

In connection with the 2022 Program, eligible entrants must. . .

  • Be a high school senior or college freshman, age 17–22.
  • Be enrolled or planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the entire 2022-2023 academic year.
  • Have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent) or provide official documentation supporting a learning need.
  • Have been recommended by, and have received the application link from, one of Garden of Dreams Foundation’s 30 partner charities.
