Meriem’s journey to Minneapolis College was no small feat. After escaping a revolution and threats from ISIS in her home country of Tunisia, Meriem applied for and was granted asylum in the United States. While she was initially relieved, she continued to struggle with no support system to look to for guidance.
After applying to Minneapolis College and meeting with the Foundation, Meriem was awarded the Henao Family Scholarship; she has a tuition-free pathway to an associate degree. After finishing a liberal arts degree, she hopes to get her bachelor’s in international relations.
Meriem is just one example of over 500 student stories that are forever transformed by the Minneapolis College Foundation every year. With your help, we can continue this work.
