Education

Opportunities for lifelong learning are a hallmark of vibrant, rural Minnesota communities. Blandin Foundation supports students’ initiative to seek the education they want, especially in the Itasca area.

Education after high school was a fundamental value of founder CK Blandin, a self-starter and entrepreneur for whom post-secondary education was out of reach. The Foundation’s education grants are one our longest-running grant programs, reflecting Mr. Blandin’s commitment to put education within reach for Itasca area students.
