18 More Minnesota State Workforce Development Scholarships available for Fall Semester
Employers 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.
