For the Iron Range Scholarship, applicants must be a Minnesota resident or eligible for MN Dream Act. This is a highly competitive scholarship, where most awardees are in the top 10% of a graduating class. Scholarship decisions are based on a very careful, overall assessment of each admitted student's academic preparation and performance, as well as the additional information provided in the admission application, based on the academic and context factors. The strongest consideration in the decision is given to the primary factors, and no single factor is the deciding factor in the decision.
