Quick fact: The State Grant program's student impact
More than 81,000 Minnesota residents received a State Grant to help keep college affordable in the 2016-17 academic year. That’s one in four Minnesota undergraduates enrolled in college here.
Students receiving these need-based grants attend two- and four-year institutions, both public and private. They’re both traditional age, meaning between 18 to 24, as well as adult learners.
Nearly all State Grant recipients have a family income of less than $80,000.
