Welcome to the Dell Scholars Program Online Recommendation!

The recommendation period for this year's class of Dell Scholars closed on 3/10/2018. We are no longer accepting recommendations for this year's class of Dell Scholars.

Funded by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, a private foundation dedicated to enabling children and youth to achieve their potential, the Dell Scholars program offers an opportunity for under-served and lower income students to realize their dream of a college education. $20,000 scholarships are offered to students for full-time study to complete a bachelor's degree program.

The Dell Scholars Program places greater emphasis on the student's determination to succeed than their academic record and test scores. We strongly believe being adequately prepared for college also empowers students to achieve their dreams.
