The postmark deadline for students to apply for a Nellie Stone Johnson Scholarship in the 2014-15 academic year has been extended to May 31.
The fund awards scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,000 to minority students from union families who attend or plan to attend a technical college, community college or university in the MnSCU system. To be eligible a scholarship applicant must be a racial minority and a union member or be the child, grandchild or spouse of a union member.
Scholarships are given each year to students who enroll in two year, undergraduate or graduate programs. Scholarships may be renewed for up to two years for community or technical college programs, up to four years for students working toward a bachelor’s degree and two years for those enrolled in a master’s program.
