Marge Gruenes Scholarship

The Minnesota Federation of Republican Women (MNFRW) established the Marge Gruenes Scholarship Fund in 2016 in honor of Marge Gruenes. Marge was a Past President of MNFRW and the Metro Republican Women’s Club. She was also Past Chairwoman of the MN State Republican Party. She was an educator for more than 35 years, serving as a teacher and administrator. Upon retirement from public school education, she continued teaching at the College of St. Benedict.
One annual scholarship of $1,000 is available to provide financial assistance and support to qualified young women seeking undergraduate degrees. College sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. Recent high school graduates and first year college women are not eligible to apply for the scholarship (unless they have already completed an A.A. degree). Previous MNFRW scholarship winners are not eligible to re-apply.
