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. You must be enrolled full-time at an accredited post-secondary educational institution in the state of Minnesota in the upcoming academic year. You need to maintain full-time status throughout the academic year. You must be willing to complete a minimum of 50 volunteer hours tutoring children in grades K-8th per academic year awarded the grant. This is for ages 18-35.
The Page Education Foundation's goal is to encourage, motivate, and assist Minnesota's students of color in the pursuit of post-secondary education, and, in the process, change the future. The Foundation achieves that goal by doing two things. First, by providing financial assistance to students pursuing post-secondary education. Second, and most important, by requiring its Page Scholars to work with young children, kindergarten through eighth grade, specifically in the area of education.
