The Talle Family Scholarship's purpose is to inspire, reward, and support academic excellence by awarding full tuition scholarships to exceptional students during their senior year in CLA. This prestigious award to outstanding undergraduate students is made possible through the generosity of Kenneth Talle. Margaret and Kenneth Talle graduated in 1966 from the University of Minnesota in the College of Liberal Arts. As one of ten scholarship recipients from across the college, you should be very proud of your success.
