Minnesota Scholarships

As one of the most literate and politically active states in the country, Minnesota knows the value of education. The University of Minnesota’s main campus in the Twin Cities is one of the largest campuses in the country, with an average enrollment over 50,000.

U of M is among more than 200 postsecondary institutions in Minnesota. Finding financial aid is crucial if you’re attending one of these schools, and plenty of Minnesota scholarships are available to help you pay your way.

Popular Minnesota Scholarships

The Achieve Scholarship is a good source of Minnesota financial aid. The Minnesota Office of Higher Education awards 3,000 of these state-funded scholarships per year on average. The award amount varies between about $1,200 and $4,000.

The Office of Higher of Education also funds the Minnesota State Grant. This grant is even more abundant than the Achieve Scholarship; an average of 85,000 are awarded per year.

A number of popular Minnesota scholarships are reserved for students with particular needs. For example, the $2,000 Post-Secondary Child Care Grant is designed for parents of children aged 12 years or younger who demonstrate financial need.

Applying for Minnesota Scholarships

Scholarships from the Minnesota Office of Higher Education have a rather late application deadline, 30 days after the start of the term. Most other Minnesota scholarships have deadlines in December, February or April.

While most state-funded scholarships are for Minnesota residents, out-of-state students can apply for several institutional scholarships. Bethel University, for example, reserves the Travel Scholarship for students from the other 49 states or Canada.
