I Have a Dream Award

Thanks to the generosity of private donors, Durham Technical Community College is able to provide scholarships to our students each year. The I Have a Dream Award is a need-based scholarship offered to one curriculum and one continuing education student.

If awarded, you agree to participate in the Friday, January 13, 2017 MLK Faculty/Staff Luncheon Event and read a portion of your essay.

Scholarships do not require repayment unless you receive an award and then drop or withdraw from your class(es). In that case, you must notify the Durham Tech Foundation immediately. You will then be required to repay any scholarship funds awarded to you that semester.

Supplemental Questions
  1. Choose a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and type a 500 word essay answering the following question: How does that quote guide you in achieving your dreams to complete your education and career goals?
  2. How will this scholarship help you to pursue your educational goals?
  3. What extracurricular or volunteer involvement do you perform, how long have you participated and why did you choose to become involved?
