Future Together Grant Program


Program Overview

The final term of awarding Future Together Grant is Spring 2024.

The FTG program supports eligible students enrolled in academic programs leading to a certificate, diploma, or degree in high-need career areas. This is a temporary program funded with a $35 million investment of American Rescue Plan funds. The program addresses the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic by seeking to increase the number of qualified workers in high-need careers and supporting the education and training needs of individuals in occupations most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The FTG creates tuition and fees-free pathways for eligible students. The FTG will not only support economic development, but also play a critical role in advancing efforts to meet OHE’s goal of having 70 percent of Minnesotans, aged 25 to 44, attain a postsecondary certificate or degree by 2025.
