Our Opportunities

To view a list of Minnesota State Mankato scholarship opportunities, click “Ours” under “Opportunities” above. This list shows all scholarships listed in the system, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means no additional action after completing the General Application is required for consideration. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

Please Note: Listed opportunities are for Spring 2018 and later.
Most scholarships for CURRENTLY ENROLLED Minnesota State Mankato students open in the month of February every year.
