Awards are allocated based on a variety of factors, including eligibility, merit and financial need. Financial need will be determined by completed FAFSA applications. UMN students and non-UMN students are welcome to apply. Students are not applying for a specific scholarship. If your ability to take field courses is dependent on scholarship funding, there is not a penalty for enrolling then later unenrolling. Students will be notified of awards by the end of April.
