In Minnesota, our member institutions have the highest share of first-time, full-time Pell Grant recipients graduating in four years — and when compared to other states’ publics and nonprofits, we rank first nationally. Pell grants help low-income students pay for college; more than one in four students at Minnesota Private Colleges receive them.
