Guiding the Path to Student Success

The Education Fund launched The North Star Fund in the spring of 2017. This new fund provides general scholarship support and funds initiatives that promote student access, retention, and completion. A healthy North Star Fund allows the Education Fund to be more responsive to the growing financial needs of our students, faculty, staff, and programs.

This type of flexible funding source allows our students to feel successful in their studies, our faculty and staff to excel in teaching and continued learning, and our college to become the cornerstone of a sustainable community. Our board of directors, with guidance from advancement staff, uses the North Star Fund to augment student scholarships, support professional development for faculty and staff, invest in new technologies for the college, and to help keep North's programs relevant for today's changing workforce.
