- Scholarship Description
Minnesota State Grants help students from low- and moderate-income families pay for educational expenses at eligible Minnesota colleges or universities. Eligible institutions include the state universities, the University of Minnesota, public community and technical colleges, schools of nursing and related health professions, private colleges, and private career institutions in Minnesota. Minnesota residents who are graduates of a secondary school or its equivalent or are at least 17 years of age and will be enrolled as undergraduates for at least three credits at one of more than 130 eligible schools in Minnesota are eligible for the grant.
Students who are in default on a student loan or who are more than 30 days behind on child support owed to a public agency are not eligible unless they have established payment plans with the appropriate agency and made a series of on-time monthly payments. There is no charge for applying to the Minnesota State Grant Program. Students can apply for a State Grant by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
