MnSCU Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program
Are you planning to enroll in a high-demand field at a MNSCU two-year college next fall?

The MnSCU Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program will be awarded to on a first-come, first-served basis based on FAFSA completion date, so you are encouraged to complete your FAFSA as early as possible in order to have an opportunity to earn this grant.

Seniors! Sign up for Summer Nudging from the Office of Higher Education. Summer Nudging is a program designed to help college-bound students successfully entered into college in the fall through weekly text message and email reminders ("nudges").
