Minot State University is launching a new, automatic Hometown Pride Scholarship for area high school seniors.
The $1,000 scholarship is exclusively for May 2022 high school graduates from Minot and regional schools located in North Dakota’s northwestern counties.
“For the past few months, we’ve been working behind the scenes to put together what we felt was the perfect scholarship to recognize students right here in our community,” director of marketing Cole Krueger said.
Krueger said the Minot and surrounding communities have “been the backbone of Minot State since 1913” and that the scholarship is a way of saying thank you.
The Hometown Pride Scholarship also comes with additional perks, including the first opportunity to register for classes at an exclusive early access orientation.
Eligible students admitted to Minot State by March 31, 2022 will not need to apply for the scholarship; funds will automatically be applied to tuition, fees, and/or room and board in $500 increments each semester of the 2022-23 school year.
Admission Counselor at Minot State’s, Sydney Clark said applications are open.
“They can take advantage by applying right away. Our application for the 2022 fall is now open, tomorrow is our college application month so they can start,” Clark added.
