We are so excited to be partnering with BonafideU a great new scholarship program to promote kindness through our students at Mahtomedi! 

To apply students submit stories explaining how the person they are nominating has demonstrated extraordinary kindness, brought people together or made someone feel like they matter.  Two students are awarded a $2,500 scholarship each.  Please visit to read some of the amazing stories and more information on how you can change the world through kindness.

In the midst of our nation’s staggering decline of civility, the mission of the BonafideU Foundation is to promote positive actions and change attitudes about civility and the role it plays in developing successful people and a peaceful society. By reinforcing the right behavior with the right words and giving a voice to the right storytellers, we can make civility cool. With the BonafideU Foundation working as the backbone behind our collective impact, a kinder, more compassionate world is achievable through the awesome power of storytelling, the sweeping virility of social media and Generation Z’s insatiable drive to change the world”
