Fergus Area College Foundation offers a variety of scholarships to both first- and second-year students for classes taken on the Minnesota State Fergus Falls campus. Eligible applicants must take a minimum of 8 credits on the Fergus Falls campus (the 8 credits do not include online classes), as well as have a 2.5 GPA. Students need to apply for admission early to be considered for the automatic scholarships as funding will be first-come, first-served and there will be limited amounts beyond the tiered program.
Scholarships are monetary gifts, which means you don’t need to repay them or earn the funds by working. Scholarships are considered part of your financial aid package, and they may replace some or all of your financial aid eligibility, reducing your possible debt. They are a form of financial assistance awarded to students based on specific criteria that have been determined by the donor or organization providing the funds and the FACF board of directors.
