Minnesota State College Southeast gets $516,513 grant to expand high school credit program

Minnesota State College Southeast has received a $516,513 grant from the National Science Foundation to expand its partnerships that provide college credits and credentials to high school students. Through the project, entitled "Rural Electronics Education Hub Pilot in the Upper Mississippi River Basin," Minnesota State College Southeast will expand the pipeline of skilled technicians into electronics careers, according to a news release from the school, which has campuses in Winona and Red Wing.

The grant is modeled after an NSF award of $441,952 to the college in 2019 to establish a rural advanced manufacturing education hub.

"This latest NSF grant will expand our partnerships with regional high schools by increasing opportunities for high school students to earn certificates in electronics and CNC," said Interim President Larry Lundblad, who noted that the model serves students from 10 schools in the region.
