18 More Minnesota State Workforce Development Scholarships available for Fall Semester

Auto Body Collision Technology StudentEmployers in our region are asking for skilled, well-educated employees in a number of high-demand sectors, including manufacturing, health care, and transportation careers. To help meet this ever-increasing need, the Minnesota state legislature allocated funding for a $1 million pilot program that initially awarded hundreds of scholarships throughout Minnesota in the 2018-2019 academic year.

The program was so successful that this spring the Minnesota Legislature and Governor Walz approved an appropriation that added $7 million to the Workforce Development Scholarship program. Funding is available to support students at the colleges and universities of Minnesota State who are pursuing programs that prepare graduates for careers in high demand sectors.  

To date, Minnesota State College Southeast awarded sixteen scholarships for students in 2018-19 and eight additional scholarships for 19-20. Now 18 more $2500 scholarships will be available to Minnesota students who are beginning college at MSC Southeast this fall!  Apply now for this competitive scholarship program. The deadline to apply is August 5, and scholarship awards will be announced on August 9, 2019.
