Established in 2020, the Family Pathways Scholarship seeks to amplify the voices of Black students in our communities through the possibilities of education.
Inspired by national conversations on race and inclusion, as well as Family Pathways’ mission to affect positive social change, a local couple sought out Family Pathways’ partnership in the Fall of 2020 with a desire to fund a scholarship program for Black students living in East Central MN and Western WI.
Our commitment to combat racism and grow towards change and inclusion, means we must be more than just words, more than just a statement. The Family Pathways Board of Directors and Staff look to the future for additional opportunities to build equity and justice for all of our neighbors.
Completed application must be received via email, mail, or fax and postmarked by deadline to be eligible.
