Funding Priorities

Sponsor a student for TuitionMatch-MN. Your donation will make it possible for an eligible student at Saint Paul College to triple the dollars that they save to pay for tuition. For each $1.00 saved by the student, a federal grant will match $1.50 and your donation will do the same.

Your donation of $1,440 will fully fund one TuitionMatch-MN student.

Establish a Scholarship
When you establish a scholarship at Saint Paul College, your donation goes right to our students.  You can support students in a particular program, honor a loved one or to show appreciation for someone who has inspired you.  You can create a scholarship that’s given out once, or an endowed scholarship that will last a lifetime.  A one-time named scholarship can be established for $500, or we can work with you to set up a plan to establish an endowed scholarship fund at a minimum of $10,000.

Emergency Funds
Unexpected financial crises can derail a student’s education. Emergency funds are available to help a student stay in school. For example, funds have been used to help a student who lost everything in a house fire, another had their backpack stolen, or one had a major care repair, and a change in childcare arrangements. Your donation of $300 will help a student through an emergency.
