Surprising Students with Scholarship
Wallin Education Partners surprised ten students from two high schools with the news that they had been awarded a Wallin Scholarship!
Each scholar will receive up to $16,000 over four years, advising, and access to support. The surprise took place at Harding Senior High School in Saint Paul and South High School in Minneapolis.
Today, Wallin Education Partners is announcing its largest class ever, with 316 four-year scholars from 50+ high schools and over $7 million of support.
Each Wallin Scholar has demonstrated years of effort, engagement, and excellence in their education and community.
For 30 years, Wallin Education Partners has advanced equity in education through college and career success. Wallin serves high-potential students from low-income backgrounds, primarily in the Twin Cities.

Announcing New Video
We are proud to share a new video featuring three of our scholars. This video was made possible through the generosity of NorthStar Education Finance and Sunrise Banks. One of the best ways to illustrate the impact of our work is by asking our students to share what Wallin means to them in their own words.
