Page Grants are awarded to Minnesota students of color who attend Minnesota post-secondary schools and agree to complete annual service projects with young children. Students at all levels of academic achievement can qualify for a grant. The selection process highlights an applicant’s attitude toward education, willingness to provide service to children, and financial need. All recipients of the Page Grant are required to participate in our Service to Children Program.

Populations Of Focus
As part of the recruiting process, the Page Education Foundation has two concentrated efforts – AAMRI (African American Male Recruitment Initiative) and American Indian, for populations that have had historically low enrollments. Foundation staff strategically recruits African American males and American Indian high school students and encourages them to apply for Page Grants.
