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.
Students are eligible for an MHTF Scholarship if they are:
- Pursuing an undergraduate degree in a STEM field or in STEM teaching
- Sophomore through senior status for the 2010-2011 school year (includes students who have achieved this status via advanced placement (AP) credit or post secondary options (PSEO)
