2018 Scholarship Program Recipients
Applications have been reviewed, and we are in the process of notifying applicants of the results of the Minnesota PTA Scholarship program selection process.
Three scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded to high school seniors who will be entering the field of education at a Minnesota College or University. The scholarships will be awarded based on academic ability, financial need, community service, and essay response. Only high school students attending a high school with an active PTA, or have purchased a membership with the Minnesota PTA ($15), are eligible to apply for these scholarships.
All applications postmarked no later than April 27th, 2018 were considered.
