Quick fact: Impact of the Minnesota State Grant
More than 80,000 Minnesota residents received a State Grant to help keep college affordable in the 2017-18 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, and 90 percent of all State Grant recipients have a family income of less than $80,000.
Over 11,400 students at our 17 member colleges— that’s one in three Minnesota college students enrolled at our schools — were State Grant recipients, with an average award of $4,826.
