CSP is one of five MPCC schools selected to participate in the Eddie Phillips Scholarship for African-American Men program. Three Concordia students will be awarded this scholarship this spring. Over their junior and senior years these young men gain experiences and support with completing their degrees and preparing to launch post-baccalaureate careers. Scholarship funds, leadership development opportunities and mentoring are the key ingredients in the Eddie Phillips Scholarship for African-American Men.
Created and coordinated by the Minnesota Private College Fund, the Eddie Phillips Scholarship for African-American Men is funded by The Jay & Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Minnesota. Students are named in the spring of their sophomore year and participate over their junior and senior years.
The 2017 cohort of 15 students will be named in the spring. They will come from five participating institutions:
Concordia University, St. Paul
University of St. Thomas
St. Mary’s University of Minnesota
