"I am a nontraditional student — an adult nursing student who is also a mom to three kids. I am thankful for this grant that allows me to attend the school that works best for me, while also working fewer hours so that I can focus on my nursing studies."
— Bekki Hince, class of 2015, Bethel University
“With this grant, I was able to afford to live on campus, which is huge and has allowed me to experience campus fully and focus on my studies. It also helps relieve the financial burden on my father, who is a single parent.”
— Arielle Skalisky, class of 2016, The College of St. Scholastica
"My sister will also be in college soon. Without the State Grant, I would be more worried that we couldn’t keep up with payments."
— Carlos Rivera, class of 2015, St. Olaf College
"Being able to receive a State Grant has eased the financial burden. It has allowed me to attend a college that’s a good fit for my academic and other interests."
— Claire Willeck, class of 2015, Carleton College
