Event Scholarships

We believe in the power of events to inspire, equip and connect people to think bigger and think differently about what is possible in our communities.

We offer scholarships for individuals from our region — Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geography — to attend national events and conferences, where they can:

  • Step out of their daily routines.
  • Build new connections both within the region and beyond.
  • Develop leadership skills.
  • Be inspired to think bigger and think differently about their work.
  • Contribute their voices and perspectives to national conversations.

We hope to make these opportunities available to the most diverse array of people possible, across geography, sectors and demographics. In 2019, we will offer scholarships to the Aspen Ideas Festival and other events that will be announced soon. (Past events have included Independent Sector's Upswell, PopTech, SOCAP and more.) We invite you to apply for the experience/s you would benefit from and contribute to the most.

Please stay tuned for more opportunities!
