Comprehensive support for scholars throughout college:
Financial aid designed to leverage all sources of aid to benefit scholars. Close relationships with colleges ensures that financial aid is not displaced and offsets the cost of attendance.
Meaningful donor engagement: Donors participate in scholar selection, meet the scholars and their families, and receive regular detailed reports on scholar progress.
A clear focus on results
Extraordinary graduation rates: The most recent cohort of scholars achieved a 93% college graduation rate.
Employment success: 95% of students are employed or enter graduate school within six months of graduation.
A manageable level of student loan debt: 39% of scholars report no debt at graduation; for those with debt, the average amount is roughly half of Minnesota’s average.
High Return on Investment: Named scholarships provide recognition for donors and can motivate scholars to succeed. Many donor partners establish strong relationships with their scholars making the donor experience particularly meaningful.
