“With the Minnesota State Grant program I am able to take the courses and courseload needed to pursue my major and career in nursing. The grant has alleviated the financial stress of school’s cost and affordability, which in turn has given me the opportunity and time to focus on my studies and extracurricular activities.”
Strong financial aid programs are critical to the future of our kids, our economy and our state.
One out of every four college students receives a Minnesota State Grant. Without it, many students would be unable to attend college — or they would have to take on more debt.
As a student, parent, alum or other supporter, there are simple things you can do to help. This can include learning about the State Grant, spreading the word about its importance and sharing your views with the lawmakers who will decide on future funding.
