Foundation Scholarships

The education scholarships funded annually by the Care Providers of Minnesota Foundation are designed to assist qualified persons who wish to further their education and practice serving seniors and persons with disabilities. It is the Foundation’s intention to encourage scholarship recipients to continue to work serving seniors and persons with disabilities although this not a requirement.

In 2018, 13 scholarships totaling $17,275.00 were awarded to students in nursing, healthcare administration, physical therapy, social work, counseling & more!
