MSES is proud to announce the opening of its Annual Scholarship Program available to undergraduate students pursuing a major/career in any Minnesota transportation infrastructure related field. Financial awards for all winners will be applied to the 2020-2021 academic year.
New this year, all applications must be submitted through the available online form at mses.org here by Monday, February 3, 2020.
Schools are no longer required to collect applications or transcripts from students. We appreciate your continued assistance in advertising this opportunity to your students and helping to coordinate dates/locations for on-campus interviews if applicable.
Scholarship awards are based on a two-round determination process – written application and interview.
All written applications will be scored by MSES Scholarship Committee volunteers and top scoring applicants will be notified between February 17 – 21, 2020 to schedule an on-campus or online/phone interview between March 2 – 20, 2020.
On-campus interviews will be held at the following schools as long as there are 5 qualified applicants per school: University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, University of Minnesota – Duluth, Minnesota State University – Mankato, North Dakota State University, St. Cloud State University, University of St. Thomas. If the schools listed do not have 5 qualified applicants, online/phone interviews will be scheduled instead. Qualified students from other schools not listed will be asked to participate in an online/phone interview.
Scholarships of up to $2,000 will be awarded based on the cumulative score of the submitted application and interview.
All MSES scholarship winners will be announced by April 13, 2020.
Questions regarding scholarship guidelines, qualifications, timeline, submission process, and interviews may be directed to MSES Executive Director, Jennifer Dzioba at firstname.lastname@example.org.
