Minnesota State today announced the availability of 400 new scholarships of $2,500 each for students enrolling in high-demand programs at state colleges.
The scholarships will be available Fall semester 2018 to new students enrolling at any Minnesota State college in associate degree, diploma, or certificate programs that prepare graduates for careers in high demand sectors including advanced manufacturing, agriculture, health care services, and information technology. Scholarship awards are scheduled to be announced on March 30, 2018. Students should check with specific colleges for application deadlines.
Initially funded by a $1 million appropriation from the 2017 session of the Minnesota Legislature, the colleges and universities of Minnesota State are working with business and industry partners to supplement these scholarships through private contributions intended to make higher education even more affordable within these high demand industries.
“Minnesota State develops the talent businesses need in order to continue growing and thriving,” said Devinder Malhotra, interim chancellor of Minnesota State. “We are grateful to the legislature for this investment and look forward to delivering an impressive return for the taxpayers of Minnesota.”

Testimonials

I chose FDLTCC for a fresh start in life. It had been two years since I graduated High School and I wanted more than just working a 9-5. I was living in Florida at the time, and I had an opportunity to travel the world doing what I love playing the game of basketball.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

FDLTCC offered me a supportive environment I couldn't pass up, everyone and everything here at school is trying to help you succeed, from the programs, to the faculty, to the resources.
