Removing barriers and creating pathways for success
I’ve learned so many things from the classroom program, summer institute, and of course my incredible experience at my internship. The BrandLab staff truly cares about every single one of their interns, and they strive to make our experiences great ones.

Scholarship Program
The BrandLab remains one of the leading nonprofits in Minnesota providing college scholarships to students of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. In our recently completed fiscal year, we restructured our scholarship program to provide ongoing support for our most promising students. Previously we invited all of our Classroom students to compete for a one time scholarship of $1,000. Today we invite only the students who have successfully completed an internship through The BrandLab, to apply for a $4,000 scholarship distributed over four years. We want to help our rising stars stay in college and graduate. Additionally, we have strengthened our relationships with colleges and universities. Partner colleges around the Twin Cities are providing support in the admissions process and tuition reduction to alumni of our Internship Program.
