makes two years of tuition-free college possible for qualifying high school graduates at Minnesota State Community and Technical College with the assistance of community supporters.
M State’s Power of YOU means two years of tuition-free college for eligible students, allowing Power of YOU participants to transfer to a four-year college or university or enter the workforce with little or no student debt. Using scholarship funds contributed by community donors, Power of YOU will pay for all tuition costs that are not covered by state and federal grants. Along with financial assistance, Power of YOU helps students reach their academic and career goals with advising and academic support services. Following a successful program pilot during the 2016-17 academic year, M State will begin accepting Power of YOU application in February 2018 for Fall Semester 2018. Power of YOU participants are selected on the basis of financial need and other eligibility requirements.
Priority consideration will be given to students pursuing Associate of Arts, Associate of Science or Associate of Fine Arts transfer degrees.
