Our Friends of the Foundation

With the help of willing volunteers and generous donors, Fergus Area College Foundation makes a difference Fergus Falls campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical College. Whether it is awarding a scholarship, funding a student life activity or providing a faculty grant to enhance teaching and learning, the Foundation impacts students each and every day.

We are grateful to the donors who help us accomplish our work.

During the 2017-18 academic year, the Foundation awarded more than $185,000 in scholarships to more than 90 students. It is the largest amount the Foundation has awarded in its history. Scholarships recognize accomplishment and excellence in students. Scholarships encourage students and remind them that someone believes in them and their potential. Scholarships can mean the difference between going to college and NOT going to college for students who are faced with financial challenges. Thank you for choosing to support our students.
