Scholarship guidelines

Awarded to a student who will be a college junior or senior or first-year graduate student at the University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin, North Dakota State University at Fargo, South Dakota State University at Brookings, Iowa State University at Ames, or Michigan State University at East Lansing.
