EHS senior becomes Dell Scholar
Edina High School senior Ikraan Hassan is one of 500 students nationwide to receive a $20,000 Dell Scholarship through the Dell Scholars Program.
Dell Scholars also receive personalized and multifaceted support, a laptop, Chegg credits to be used for textbook purchases, and access to the Scholars Resource Network, which connects students and their families with support for variety of needs.
The program started in 2004 and was designed to provide a support system for the challenges many students face while pursuing a degree. There have been 5,000 scholars who have been supported, including more than 2,000 college graduates. The ideal candidate demonstrates a unique “GPA” of grit, potential, and ambition in their quest for a college education. Hassan has been a student in the district’s college preparatory program AVID, one of the key scholarship criteria. She plans to attend the University of Minnesota.
