Page Education Foundation Grants
The mission of the Page Education Foundation is to increase participation of Minnesota’s young people of color in post-secondary education. Candidates must be Minnesota students of color, demonstrate a financial need, a positive attitude toward education and community service, and attend a post-secondary institution within the state of Minnesota.
Awards consist of grants that range in value from $1,000 to $2,500. Recipients must re-apply each year that they are in school and receive subsequent grants based on their academic progress and mentoring performance.
Every school year that they accept a grant, Page Scholars must return to their communities to mentor or tutor younger children of color. Page Scholars spend 8-10 hours each month of the school year working with kindergarten-8th grade children. The goal is to help youngsters begin to value learning and see how important education will be in their lives.
