As college students persevere despite ongoing challenges due to COVID-19, Scholarship America continues to provide financial support through scholarships. The Dream Award is an annual scholarship program for deserving students who have overcome significant barriers to make it to college.

This year's diverse Dream Award recipients include: Victoria-Thy Doan from Orange, Tex. (graduate of Bridge City High School), who attends University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio

The daughter of Vietnam War refugees, Victoria has always been dedicated to giving back, even when times were tough. She has spent countless hours volunteering at her church, leading university organizations, and helping out at her family's plant nursery when she is home from school. She exemplifies the resilience of her family, for they have endured cancer in her mom and grandfather, six hurricanes, and most recently, the Texas winter storm. With encouragement from her family and help from the Dream Award, Victoria is working to complete her biochemistry degree, go on to medical school and become a physician.
