MOORHEAD – M State is enhancing its educational and entrepreneurial support services for women and genderexpansive students, thanks to a new $150,000 “We Thrive” grant award from the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota.
Designed to foster the long-term success of women and their families through the growth of intergenerational wealth, the “We Thrive” grant program invests in organizations and initiatives that address inequities in women’s access and opportunity.
M State will use the grant funds to bolster its wraparound support services for women and genderexpansive students, such as career planning, childcare, transportation, laptops and mental health services. In addition, and in alignment with the entrepreneurship goals of the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, the West Central Minnesota Small Business Development Center will provide women with one-on-one business consultation services.
