The TwinWest Foundation’s total amount of giving since 1982 is over $1 million dollars– far and away the most substantial philanthropy among chamber-sponsored scholarship programs in Minnesota. The Foundation extends its sincerest thanks to everyone who has made this possible.

Workforce & High School Scholarship Programs
Each year TwinWest Foundation scholarships are granted to both graduating high school students and adult students from TwinWest partner schools and TwinWest member post-secondary schools. This program is designed to help students advance their careers, continue their education, and further strengthen their workforce and leadership skills. The typical scholarship award is in the amount of $1,000 to $2,000 per student.
The Foundation’s $5,000 Legacy Scholarship is awarded each year to one outstanding high school senior who exemplifies positive leadership attributes and is a well-rounded student role model. Scholarship awards are announced in May.
The Legacy Scholarship program was established in the mid-1990s through a $50,000 anonymous contribution from a TwinWest Chamber member.
2018 Workforce Scholarships will be available in the spring.
