Page Grants are scholarships awarded to students of color who graduate from a Minnesota high school and attend a Minnesota post-secondary institution.
Students at all levels of academic achievement can qualify for a grant. The selection process highlights an applicant’s commitment to education, willingness to mentor children, and financial need. Students who are selected for our Page Grant program become Page Scholars.
Upon accepting the award, Page Scholars attend a 2-year or 4-year program at a Minnesota college or university and agree to complete annual service projects with children as part of the scholarship expectation.
More than 1,000 students apply for Page Grants annually. The number of Page Scholars has grown from 10 the first year to over 500 annually.
In 30 years, more than 10,000 grants totaling $14 million have been awarded to 6,750 students who have studied at 104 post-secondary schools across Minnesota.
Populations Of Focus
As part of the recruiting process, the Page Education Foundation has two concentrated efforts – our 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. Please reach out to us to learn more.
Page Grants have been awarded to students of color from a variety of backgrounds. Learn more about eligibility requirements and how to apply for a Page Grant. The deadline for application submission is May 1.
