The Public Safety Officer's Survivor Grant provides educational benefits to dependent children and the surviving spouse of a public safety officer killed in the line of duty on or after January 1, 1973.
Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree or certificate program or a graduate degree program after June 30, 2011, at an eligible Minnesota institution that participates in the State Grant Program and hasn't received benefits for the maximum of 10 full-time semesters or 15 full-time quarters. A student who withdraws from enrollment for active military service or due to a major medical illness is entitled to an additional semester of grant eligibility.
Awards are based on the annual average full-time tuition and mandatory fees charged by the institution, or the applicable tuition and fee maximum established in law. The applicable tuition and fee maximum established in law (for students in a four-year degree program, $6,920 semester/$4,613 quarter; for students in a two-year or less program, $2,868 semester/$1,912 quarter).
A student's application must be received by the agency no later than the last day of classes for the academic year for which grant funds are being requested.
