Discovery Scholars

A personal campaign sponsored by University of Minnesota

March 14, 2022


Discovery Scholars is a University wide scholarship created with students from middle class families in mind - students who are bright and hardworking and need some financial help to mitigate the rising cost of tuition and make their college dream a reality.

Since its inception in 2011, Discovery Scholars has awarded over 1,100 scholarships and over $1,000,000.

Gifts of all sizes are pooled together to support motivated and talented undergraduate students all across the U. These scholarships provide that extra boost that many students need, helping to pay for books, fund a meal plan or cover transportation costs as they realize the dream of higher education. 

Last year, alumni and friends came together to give more than 60 Discovery Scholarships to talented U of M students. This year our goal is to help 100 more students. We are more than half way there!

Together, we can give U of M students the tools, training and support they need to thrive. It’s the combined strength in giving that makes the biggest impact in students’ lives. Help us meet the goal to help 100 students next fall. 

For every $1000 you help this campaign raise, we can give another student a Discovery Scholarship.
