Vision: Creating Opportunities for Post-secondary Enrollment for all Youth

Welcome to Minnesota COPE Program

Minnesota COPE Program is a non-profit organization whose mission is dedicated to assist underrepresented scholars in attaining educational opportunities, key resources, and financial support necessary to attain their highest academic, personal, and professional career goals.

Our purpose is to provide resources and academic scholarships to college-bound students attending public or private high schools in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, and students attending college. Our objective is to assist Scholars with programs and activities to prepare them for a successful transition to post-secondary educational programs of their choice. This community outreach organization is also designed to promote student success and encourage them to pursue a productive transition to college. We invite Scholars to fill out an application by June of each year.

When the students join Minnesota COPE Program, they are required to maintain a 2.0 GPA and above; attend an orientation/workshop; participate in the Annual Scholarship/Gala each year; and write a thank-you letter to the donor(s) who sponsored their gifts and awards. Community involvement is emphasized and encouraged by requiring high school seniors to
volunteer and complete 100 hours of community service.

In addition, college students who continue in the program and receive awards each year are required to volunteer 50 hours of volunteer community service.  This experience provides scholars with the opportunity to meet donors who are supporting the organization, other students in the program, and with adult mentors.  Furthermore, volunteering for the community with helps students to develop their personal leadership skills.

Our organization is preparing the next generation for success. We are committed to assist all students who demonstrate the knowledge, skills and appreciation necessary for our rapidly changing, culturally diverse and global society
