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 member school districts 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 $500 to $2,000 per student.
The Foundation’s Legacy Scholarship, ranging from $5,000 to $7,500, is awarded each year to one outstanding high school senior who exemplifies positive leadership attributes and is awell-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.
