A young person’s life-long success begins with an education. Access to higher education promises far-reaching benefits, especially to students of color who often face daunting challenges in completing a post-secondary education. Guided by our mission to encourage Minnesota’s youth of color to pursue post-secondary education, the Page Education Foundation promotes their academic achievement, personal responsibility and untapped potential to become vital contributors to their communities. We accomplish this by granting financial assistance to post-secondary students. In return, these students actively foster positive attitudes toward literacy and learning among younger, school-age children of color through mentoring relationships. For more information:
