Career Investment Scholarships are given annually to graduating seniors in the Saint Paul/East Metro area. To date, we have invested almost $300,000 in local students attending colleges and universities in Minnesota. From homelessness to learning English as a high school student, the majority of our scholarship recipients face enormous challenges on their path to college. Most are low-income, minority students and many are the first in their family to pursue higher education - but all of them have enormous potential to succeed. With your investment, we offer the hope of a brighter future.
In 2012, the Foundation increased its scholarship awards by 35 percent, to award $50,000 to East Metro students!
How can my business contribute to a Career Investment Scholarship?
Be a sponsor at the “Named Donor” level for a Career Investment Scholarship bearing your business or an individuals name. The minimum investment for one scholarship is $1,250 but we have awarded scholarships for as much as $5,000 to $10,000 to one student at the donor's request.
I can't afford a full scholarship. Can I still contribute?
Yes, you can! Contributions beginning at as little as $10 can be directed towards our Career Investment Scholarship program. Visit the donations page on our website to contribute online through a secure website.
