Student Success Stories

Student scholar posing at Minneapolis College

“Thanks to donors like you, students like me with a lot of desire to keep moving forward can make our dreams come true. Being an undocumented student is a challenge, but I can't let challenges stop me. I have to strive hard to find ways to continue my education. I want to be a role model for my siblings and other undocumented students like myself, so that they can see we can overcome any hurdles that come our way. Better times come to those who never give up."

Everyone deserves an equal opportunity to improve their lives through education and hard work. We are proud that Minneapolis College was home to over 200 undocumented students this year. Without permanent legal status or a path to citizenship, these scholars are not eligible for federal student financial aid in any form, including loans or grants. Our undocumented neighbors face extremely challenging roadblocks to earning a college credential.

We want all of our students to know that they belong at Minneapolis College. As engines for social mobility, community colleges are often the first step up the economic ladder for immigrants. Our Star Scholarship, powered by the Minneapolis College Foundation, supports these dreamers. We need your help to turn their dreams into goals.

Please donate today and be part of the foundation of transformation at Minneapolis College. Invest in hope for our high-achieving, undocumented students and their pursuit of the American Dream. Together, we can change the world.
