Summer Scholarships for Academic Enrichment Data


 

The Summer Scholarships for Academic Enrichment program provided scholarships for Minnesota students in grades 7-11 who attend summer academic programs sponsored by Minnesota postsecondary institutions.

The program was eliminated by the 2003 Minnesota Legislature. Students interested in attending summer academic enrichment programs should contact the college sponsoring the program for information or additional sources of scholarships.
