A Minnesota funded financial aid program for Minnesota students who recently graduated from high school
The Achieve Scholarship program was designed to address two critical barriers to college attendance: lack of academic preparation and financial access. Eligible Minnesota high school graduates who completed any one of four sets of courses defined as rigorous earned a one-time scholarship to help pay for college at a public or private university or college in Minnesota.
