Co-Action Scholarships

Local business, community, and educational leaders established Co-Action Academic Resources with the goal of providing financial assistance to our youth and adult learners in support of helping them achieve post-secondary aspirations. Scholarships have been developed and are coordinated for residents and the workforce of the Maplewood, North St. Paul, and Oakdale areas.

Co-Action is here to streamline the process of administering, creating, and streamlining post-secondary scholarships. Both for those looking to receive a scholarship and for those looking to donate dollars to give one. In addition, working to build a Co-Action Scholarship Fund that will provide scholarships today and well into the future.

Investing in our youth and their post-secondary education has never been more important than now. We have never needed the help of the community more than today. As noted, we can create and distribute a scholarship for you or your business with a mere phone call. A really easy process to engage. Unlimited opportunities exist to sponsor, match or create new scholarships, endowments, or memorials. With a simple phone call or email, our group can take the administrative work out of the process and make your goals a reality.

Co-Action is separate from, but supportive of, our schools. The scholarships solicited may be available to high school seniors who attend a public or private school within the ISD 622 boundaries. Returning adult learners who reside and/ or work within the stated boundaries are also eligible for some scholarships.

Again, a gift of money and/or talents to Co-Action Academic Resources can make a tremendous difference in the lives of our community's youth and adult learners.

With your help, we can do more. Co-Action has now distributed hundreds of scholarships, and with continued financial support, we will continue to make our community a better place to live and work. Career goals realized make good economic sense for our community.

Thanks for your dedication to education and the community.

Scholarship Description about North St. Paul, Maplewood, Oakdale Rotary Club Scholarship

Dr. and Mrs. Golben established the Golben Scholarships in 1995 to encourage North High students to seek out their educational opportunities and in appreciation of the educational services their children received from the ISD 622 school district. This was the first scholarship endowment set up by an individual family to be awarded to North High students. Dr. Golben earned the very first doctorate degree awarded by the University of Kentucky in Chemistry. After his retirement from 3M, he taught at 916 Vocational Technical School.

Two scholarships: $3,500 - $4,000

Scholarship Description about Golben Scholarships

In memory of one of its board members, the Ripples of Kindness Foundation is offering the Nancy Sundgaard Davidson Memorial Scholarship to a North High School student. Nancy grew up in North St. Paul, and she and her husband were both North High School alumni. First given the nickname “Sunny” when she was a child because of her sunny disposition and a smile that lit up her surroundings, she had a strong love for children and a passion for childhood cancer causes. Nancy battled cancer several times in her lifetime, including in childhood, and lost her battle with metastatic cancer in late 2017. In her memory, and because of the imprint she left on so many lives, we have established this memorial scholarship which will be awarded to students who have been impacted by cancer and are pursuing post-secondary training or education. All students who meet the criteria below will be considered. Nancy was particularly gifted at music and art, so consideration may be given to students who have spent time participating in some form of the arts or who are pursuing additional training and education in these areas.

One scholarship: $750
