Scholarship opportunities from the Northwest Minnesota Foundation

The Northwest Minnesota Foundation has more than 100 scholarship opportunities for regional students.

According to a release, most are for high school seniors living within the 12-county region, but there are also opportunities for non-traditional students and college-enrolled students.

The scholarship round will open on Feb. 1 and close on April 15.

Scholarship awards range from $500 to $4,000, with opportunities for students living in specific districts, participating in extracurriculars, and those with a specific intended major or interest.

“NMF believes that the community members who will have the most impact in our communities are young learners who are prepared for success,” said the release.
