NE1, NE-Dream Scholarship


When people don’t have to worry about being themselves, they can focus on truly world-changing ideas.

In today’s society, self-expression can be scary. From beauty standards to gender norms to dress codes, self-expression isn’t always easy. However, everyone should feel comfortable to express themselves however they want. With more inclusivity comes more opportunities for progress and success!

This scholarship aims to make higher education more accessible by reducing the financial barriers to college.

We're excited to be able to offer a $500 Scholarship to TWO deserving students.
