In their decade of touring the world, Grammy-winning band Imagine Dragons saw firsthand that music knows no boundaries. It's a universal language that connects people from all walks of life, backgrounds, and cultures.
Unfortunately, many of those who come to America from other countries face incredible educational and financial challenges. In an effort to honor the unifying spirit of music, the band's scholarship supports and amplifies their voices, knowing that diversity makes us all stronger.
The Imagine Dragons Origins Scholarship will help four refugee, immigrant, or first-generation American students to achieve their educational dreams with $2,500 each.
Please tell us about your cultural experience as a refugee, immigrant, or first-generation American, and how the challenges you've faced have shaped your dreams and vision for the future.
The application deadline is Sep 15, 2021. Winners will be announced on Nov 2, 2021.
The scholarship award is $12,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 2, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
