USC Dream Dollars Program
Your partnership also contributes to the Career Center’s efforts to provide meaningful career resources, such as our 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 11 undergraduate students. Here is what students had to say about their experience:
Without the Dream Dollars program, my highly fulfilling internship opportunity would not have been possible. It is because of the scholarship that I was able to work part-time instead of full-time and take advantage of this tremendous opportunity. By covering expenses and replacing a portion of potential income, the Dream Dollars program afforded me the chance to spend the summer in a role where I was pursuing my passion for public service. My internship was rewarding, revealing, and energizing. I witnessed both the difficulties and the opportunities associated with a career in government. Perhaps most critically, I left my internship having a better understanding of the work culture and path for congressional careers. This internship enabled me to directly serve individual constituents while learning a great deal about the federal government and the people who make it function. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the individuals who made my experience possible through the funding of the Dream Dollars program.

The Dream Dollar Scholarship granted me the opportunity to intern in DC. I worked under the Office of Programs and Strategic Initiatives where I developed ongoing projects including the daily immigration history cart, annual Hispanic Heritage Festival, and Becoming U.S. teacher tool kits. The entire experience allowed me to continue exploring potential career options, build significant relationships, and improve my professional skills. Since leaving the internship, I am more confident in pursuing a graduate degree in Latin and Latino Studies and a career in arts or cultural institutions.
