Opportunities for Giving

When you make a contribution to the Minnesota West Foundation, you are giving an opportunity to a student for whom college might only be a dream without scholarship support. Donations may also be used to support programs on each of the campuses.

Gifts may be given with a designation to a specific campus and program or placed in the area of greatest need.

The scholarships below represent college scholarships that have been funded by private donors and college employees. The list does not include business sponsored scholarships or general foundation scholarships.
