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 2017, 17 scholarships of $1000.00 were awarded.
