Our Opportunities

To view a list of Minnesota State Mankato scholarship opportunities, click “Ours” under “Opportunities” above. This list shows all scholarships 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.
  • Click into an opportunity to see eligibility criteria and any additional question or essay requirements that will be needed for application submission.

Please Note: Listed opportunities are for Fall 2021 and later. Most scholarships for CURRENTLY ENROLLED students are available for application submission during the month of February.
