New Scholarships Could Attract Hennepin Tech Students to In-Demand Fields
The state legislature approved $2 million for new college scholarships across the state. Some of the money will help fund 26 scholarships for students to attend Hennepin Technical College next year.
Students who are studying information technology, manufacturing or health care could qualify for the $2,500 scholarships. That money covers nearly half of a student’s yearly tuition at Hennepin Tech.
“What’s great about the workforce development scholarships, it is open to all students,” says Nairobi Abrams, HTC’s chief advancement and communications officer. “All that’s required is the student has a 2.0 GPA, and they must be registered for a minimum of 9 credits.”
