The Foundations on the Faribault and North Mankato Campuses of SCC annually award over $300,000 dollars in scholarships! Funds for these scholarships are raised in a variety of ways including community-wide fund drives, faculty, staff, and alumni contributions, earnings on endowed funds, grants, and special fundraising events.
