The Minnesota High Tech Foundation
(MHTF) will once again award scholarships to undergraduate students in
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines. These
awards include six $2,000 scholarships and three $10,000 awards. The
purpose of the scholarship program is to strengthen Minnesotas future
technology workforce by providing financial support to undergraduate
students of accredited, Minnesota-based higher education institutions
pursuing careers in STEM or STEM teaching. These esteemed awards
provide a unique opportunity for students to meet Minnesota business
leaders and network into future careers and internships.
The $2,000 scholarships are supported entirely by the MHTF.
These awards will be presented in front of over 1,000 technology
executives gathered to celebrate innovation and technology at the
Minnesota Tekne Awards in November 2010. The $10,000 scholarships are
sponsored by Minnesota businesses and will be paid in equal portions as
part of a multi-year program. Students receiving the $10,000 awards
will be recognized at the MHTA Spring Conference, where more than 500
companies will gather to share information on current technology trends
and the global economy in the Spring of 2011.
