Catching the Dream is a national Native American education and scholarship center which education focuses on math, engineering, science, business, education, and computers field of study.

If you are wondering why these exact fields of study, we have to mention that these fields are critical to the future of Indian people and Native Americans are very underrepresented in these fields.

Catching the Dream Scholarship is there to help parents, grandparents, and tribal leaders so they can provide effective support for their college-bound students.
