USC Dream Dollars Program
Your participation in our Partner Program contributes to the Career Center’s efforts to provide meaningful career resources, such as the Dream Dollars scholarship program.
The USC Dream Dollars program aims to assist students by financing career exploration in the non-profit and government fields. Last summer, the USC Career Center offered the USC Dream Dollars scholarship to 10 undergraduate students.
Here is what students had to say about their experience:
Working at Oregon Health & Sciences University has ignited in me a stronger passion for scientific inquiry, and the Dream Dollars Program supported me this summer financially. Because of the generous stipend, I was able to dedicate eight-hour days, five days a week for the majority of my summer to gaining unparalleled experiences in the STEM field in a professional setting. I now understand what the rigorous field expects from me. Although I do not plan on going into research, I still plan on pursuing a career in the sciences as a doctor, more specifically, a neurosurgeon. But what I have learned during my internship this year is the engine for my future in the medical field. The USC Dream Dollars Program has allowed me to dedicate all of my time and energy to an internship that has deeply impacted both my academic life and character. This program will continue to provide opportunities for students that will touch their lives and help discover the things they love.

This scholarship allowed me to take full advantage of this internship by helping me to better focus on my projects, assignments, and learning experiences. This summer allowed me to obtain real life professional experience through web development, managing multiple projects within a time constraint, and collaboration between different teams within the Enterprise Business Solutions group. Interning at the Department of the Treasury has made my goal of working in the public sector much more tangible.
