Foundation Scholarships

The Minneapolis College Foundation offers scholarships for Minneapolis College students for fall and spring terms. Generous donors to the Minneapolis College Foundation help make these scholarships possible. Last year, we awarded over $500,000 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 applicant’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 Minneapolis College, you will be expected to write a thank you letter to the donor. Instructions will be provided. Instructions will be provided. 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 Foundation still has 8 scholarships available for this fall:

  • Graco Machine Tool Scholarship
  • Open Your Heart Scholarship
  • Pentair STEM Scholarship
  • Promise Scholarship
  • Resettled Puerto Rican Student Retention Scholarship
  • St. Mark’s Cathedral Lionheart Scholarship
  • U.S. Bank IT Scholarship
  • Uttley Sullivan Family Scholarship

Your answers to qualifying questions on the application will determine which of the 8 scholarships you are eligible for.

Applications are due Friday, August 30 @ 11:59 p.m.
