Quick fact: State Grant helps 35% of our Minnesota students
Minnesota’s State Grant program provides critical aid to 35% of Minnesota students at Minnesota’s Private Colleges. It targets low- and middle-income students who most need assistance to earn a college degree, with awards based on student and family need, which takes into account family income, the cost of attendance, the number of students in the family, and the amount of Pell Grant aid a student receives.
The State Grant program helps students across the state at public and private institutions, whether they are earning associate or bachelor’s degrees. The share of all Minnesota college students who receiving State Grants is about one in three — similar to the share at our private institutions.
