GRIP DREAMer Scholarship Fund

One of our biggest accomplishments as a community organization was establishing a scholarship fund for talented students whose immigration status makes them ineligible for State and Federal financial aid. Many of these students have grown up in Berks County and have attended our school districts most of their lives. We believe it is our duty to help today’s young adults become tomorrow’s leaders, and the only way to achieve this is though an education. Currently, the fund provides $500 - $3000 scholarships to qualifying students. These scholarships may be renewable for four years contingent on availability of funds and the students continued eligibility.  Berks County Community Foundation (BCCF) is managing the GRIP Dreamer Scholarship Fund
