Learn and Earn with College Track

We know financing college presents a major barrier to earning a college degree.

From need-based scholarships to merit-based scholarships to key resources and support for DREAMers, our scholarship program is focused on helping our students build a sense of ownership for the financial responsibilities associated with attending college as early as freshman year of high school.

DOOR Award

The DOOR (Dreams Overcoming Obstacles to Reality) Award is designed to support students who face a gap between their financial aid package and the cost of attending college. DOOR scholarships can be used to cover a portion of the following costs:

  • Tuition, registration, and additional fees
  • Room and board
  • Books and supplies
  • Health insurance fees
  • Transportation or travel expenses

For more information, please read our DOOR Policy. Complete the 2018-2019 DOOR application to request funding.


Bank Book is the cornerstone of our merit-based scholarship program at College Track. All high school students are eligible to earn up to and exceeding $5,600 that can be accessed over the course of high school and college. Steps to earning Bank Book dollars include:

  • Earning a 3.0 GPA or higher
  • Completing 100 hours or more of community service
  • Achieving a 90% College Track attendance rate

For more information about Bank Book please read the Bank Book Policy. To access funds, submit a check request form.


College Track provides invaluable support for our DREAMers and DACA recipients. Examples of financial resources for DREAMers include:

  • Access to need- and merit-based scholarships specifically for DREAMers and DACA recipients
  • Scholarships to cover DACA application and renewal fees
  • Free immigration screenings at local College Track centers and access to free or low-cost legal aid
