University of Minnesota Scholarship in Honor of George Floyd: Twin Cities Award

The University of Minnesota Scholarship in Honor of George Floyd is now accepting applications from all eligible students, including those with financial need and those who have been victims of police violence. Candidates are eligible to be considered for this scholarship if they are currently registered full-time in an undergraduate degree-seeking program at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.

The scholarship application is available at the UMTC Undergraduate Scholarship Search site. Click ‘Let’s Begin’ and find the link for the University of Minnesota Scholarship in Honor of George Floyd.  It will include detailed information about the scholarship program and the application process. The award amount is expected to be approximately $4,000 for two UMTC students split evenly between the fall 2022 and spring 2023 semesters.

To the maximum extent possible, preference will be given to students who will enhance the diversity of the student body as described by the University. In evaluating student body diversity, after the eligible pool of candidates is selected, an additional consideration will be given to Black or African American students if they are underrepresented in the University. For the current term, spring 2022, Black or African American students are underrepresented at the University.

The deadline for complete applications is 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26, 2022.
