International College Counselors is excited to tell you about this.
Incredibly, all Miami-Dade public and private school students who graduate with a GPA 3.0 or higher will be able to attend Miami Dade College for free starting in the fall.
The American Dream Scholarship, the first scholarship program of its kind, was designed to let more Miami-Dade students focus on their academic ambitions than worry about paying their bills.
The scholarship will cover 60 credits, which would normally cost about $6,500.
The scholarship is open to any student with a diploma, whether he or she attended a private, public or charter school in Miami-Dade, or was home-schooled.
Entering students would have to meet certain qualifications:
• Be a legal Miami-Dade County resident.
• Graduate from high school with a weighted GPA of 3.0 or higher and maintain that through
• Have MDC entry test scores indicating they are ready for college.
• Apply for federal student aid.
• Not be currently enrolled at Miami Dade College.
All graduating seniors this year will be eligible for scholarships come next fall. There is no separate application for the American Dream Scholarship. Simply apply for admission to Miami Dade College, and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the Aug. 1, 2011 deadline; meet the requirements; and register for at least 12 credits in the fall and you will be awarded this opportunity.
