Fergus Area College Foundation offers a variety of scholarships to both first- and second-year students at M State in Fergus Falls. Most scholarship awards are based on academic and leadership performance. There are several scholarships that are based on students' special interests. Scholarship application should be submitted by April 1. You may apply after this priority deadline; however, scholarships will be awarded only as long as funding is available.
Freshman scholarships are awarded on the basis of ACT scores, high school GPA, demonstrated leadership experience and written responses to several questions. Scholarship awards are renewed for a second year at M State - Fergus Falls Campus for students who earn a first-year college GPA of 3.0 or better and complete the renewal scholarship application.
Awards can range from $500 to full tuition paid per academic year. Students with exemplary academic achievements will have the opportunity to apply for the full-tuition Presidential Scholarships. Applications for the Presidential Scholarships will be mailed to eligible students along with their initial scholarship award notices.
Students must be registered for fall semester courses to be considered for renewal and second year scholarships. Award notifications will be sent out shortly after spring semester grades are posted.
If you have questions about M State scholarships or your eligibility, you can visit with an M State resource specialist at 218-736-1500 or toll-free at 1-877-450-3322.
