PACIM administers a growing scholarship program, funded by generous donors who want to establish a legacy for Polish heritage and support the academic pursuits of future generations.
Polanie Legacy Scholarship
The Polanie Legacy Scholarship, established in 2014 through a generous bequest of the Polanie Organization, supports studies at a post-secondary institution, including colleges, universities, technical schools, and vocational schools. Preferential consideration will be given to residents of Minnesota and Wisconsin and members of PACIM.
Each scholarship will be awarded in the amount of $2000. Multiple scholarships may be awarded in each year. If no applicants meet the criteria, no scholarship will be awarded. Applicants may apply in successive years for consideration.
Rog Endowment Fund
The The Polish American Cultural Institute of Minnesota (PACIM) established an endowment fund honoring one of its founding members, Chester Rog. The fund grants stipends up to $2,000 per year to individuals and/or groups who seek further professional growth in the study of Polish language, art and culture both locally and abroad, and who are committed to use what they have achieved to benefit the cause of Polish heritage in Minnesota or Wisconsin.
