Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) Latino Scholarship Fund

In the early 1990’s a group of low income individuals with business aspirations had the dream of implementing a program that would offer higher education opportunities to low income Latino students who might also face other legal challenges that prevented them from having access to financing in order to continue their education. For many years, Latino leaders from different fields of community development kept meeting to continue working on the process of figuring out a program that would allow the fulfillment of the original vision. The Latino Economic Development Center and its membership took the responsibility of creating a vehicle that would allow the fulfillment of such vision. Today that vision has become the Latino Scholarship Fund of The Minneapolis Foundation.
