MSC Southeast to offer 8 Workforce Development Scholarships valued at $3500 for Minnesota students entering college this fall
Application Deadline March 1, 2019; Awards to be announced in April
Winona and Red Wing, MN (January 24, 2019) – This spring, eight lucky students will receive $3500 Workforce Development Scholarships from Minnesota State College Southeast. The scholarships are available to students who will start college next fall in a field that will help meet the area’s workforce needs, including manufacturing, health care, information technology, and agriculture (see list of programs below).
Workforce Development Scholarships are intentionally targeted to recent high school graduates and adults coming to college to train for a new career. They are designed to help prepare the next generation of workers in high-demand fields. Only eight (8) $3500 scholarships are available, and applicants must be Minnesota residents.
“This is an incredible opportunity! A $3500 scholarship will cover more than half of a full-time student’s tuition,” said Casie Johnson, Minnesota State College Southeast Foundation Associate Director. “Plus, students who are admitted for 2019-2020 are still eligible to apply for other scholarship opportunities through the MSC Southeast Foundation.”
Workforce Development Scholarships are made possible by the Minnesota State legislature, with additional funding provided by donors to the Minnesota State College Southeast Foundation.
The deadline to apply for a Workforce Development Scholarship is MARCH 1, 2019. Awards will be announced on April 1, 2018.
