Foundation Scholarships

The Minneapolis College Foundation offers scholarships to Minneapolis College students for fall and spring terms. Generous donors to the Foundation help make these opportunities possible. Last year, we awarded nearly $600,000 in scholarships to Minneapolis College students.

The number of students receiving private support is constantly increasing as we continue our scholarship fundraising drive. These scholarships are highly competitive and decisions are based on a very careful assessment of each student’s submitted application by the Scholarship Committee.

Scholarships are typically awarded for one academic year or term (fall and spring or spring only), unless otherwise noted. In most cases, recipients must reapply for any subsequent years. If you receive a scholarship from the Minneapolis College Foundation, you will be asked to attend a mandatory scholar orientation session where you learn the specifics of your scholarship award, write a thank you letter to the donor, meet the Foundation team, and get a professional photo taken. Please note that we have many more applicants for scholarships than we have funds to award, so not all students will receive a scholarship. 

The application opens in March and closes in May.
