You’ve been invited to apply to the Garden of Dreams Inspire Scholarship Program. For the 2023 program, we will be awarding fifteen (15) $15,000 scholarships to high school seniors. Each scholarship may be renewed for up to three (3) years, depending on an award recipient’s undergraduate enrollment status and provided the student continues to comply with the terms of the scholarship and fulfills the yearly renewal obligations as communicated by or on behalf of Garden of Dreams (for example: maintaining a certain minimum GPA and completing the annual renewal form.)

This program was designed to give high school seniors financial assistance to advance their educations and realize their dreams. The Inspire Scholarship Program is only available to high school seniors that are affiliated with a Garden of Dreams partner organization.
