An American Dream Come True
The American Dream Scholarship helps the dream of higher education become a reality. This scholarship picks up where other aid and scholarships leave off, ensuring that bright, qualified students have the means to continue their education.
The scholarship is made possible by the generosity of members of the Greater Miami community such as the Mitchell Wolfson Sr. Foundation. These benefactors recognize the importance of a College education and are pleased to support the quality education offered by MDC. The Basics
