The Minnesota Academic Excellence Scholarship helps students who have demonstrated outstanding ability, achievement, and potential in one of several subjects: English or creative writing, fine arts, foreign language, math, science, or social science.

Funding for this program comes from the sale of special collegiate license plates. The availability and amount of scholarships depend on that funding. A report of the fees generated from the sale of collegiate license plates can be found here.

High school graduates must be admitted to enroll full-time in a nonsectarian, baccalaureate degree-granting program at:

A) The University of Minnesota.

B) A Minnesota state university.

C) A Minnesota private, baccalaureate degree-granting college or university.

Students MUST enroll during the year of their high school graduation.

How Much Money Can You Get?

The scholarship can be renewed annually for up to three academic years if the student meets certain academic standards.

A) At public institutions, the scholarship may cover up to the full price of tuition and fees for one academic year.
