MnSCU Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program

Program purpose

The program provides financial assistance to students enrolled in qualifying career and technical programs at public two-year colleges so that students can complete the program within two years or less and find employment in a high-demand field. It was created by the 2015 Minnesota Legislature and will be implemented for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years as a pilot program.

Amount of grant

The grant will cover any remaining tuition and general fee charges after the student’s Federal Pell Grant and MN State Grant have been applied to the student’s account.
