MHTA STEM Scholarships – Applications are Currently Being Accepted

Lots of opportunities this week…

The application period for the MHTA Foundation 2019 scholarships has opened.

We will be announcing the 2019 STEM Scholarship winners at the Tekne Awards on Nov. 20, 2019.

You can find the list of 2018 STEM Scholars is here.

The scholarships are for Minnesota undergraduate students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines.

These awards include $2,500 and $5,000 awards and can include internship opportunities at MHTA member companies. MHTF supports diversity in this application and award process.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Must be pursuing an undergraduate degree in a STEM field or in STEM teaching
  • Only students with sophomore through senior academic status in the current school year may apply. Sophomore status may include students who have achieved this status through advanced placement (AP) credit or post-secondary options (PSEO)s
  • Applicants must be enrolled at an accredited, Minnesota-based higher education institution.
  • Scholarships will be awarded in the fall term of 2018 and presented to recipients at MHTA’s Tekne Awards in November. Students must be enrolled at time of award.

Special Circumstances

  • In addition to traditional STEM fields, health science majors whose studies will NOT lead to participation in direct patient care are welcome to apply.
  • The scholarship is open to international students, but preference is given to students who intend to work in Minnesota after graduation.
  • Past scholarship winners are eligible to re-apply as long as they meet the rest of the requirements listed here.
