A spring application is now open through December 5 for students who have not received an award this academic year. For those planning on attending fall of 2022, look for an application to open December 15.
FACF offers approximately 100 different scholarships through one online scholarship application.
Please use a non-school email you check regularly as award notifications and further directions will be communicated to you through this email. Your email is where you will be notified of your award.
Minimum Scholarship Requirements:
- GPA of 2.5 or higher (You will need to include a current high school or college transcript)
- Must take a minimum of 8 credits which one is assigned to the Fergus Falls campus.
- This means you CAN be a part-time student.
- We will prorate if 8-11 credits. Prorating means we pay per credit. If you are awarded $1200 and only take the required 8 credits mentioned above, the prorated amount would be ($1200 annual award/12 credits = $100 per credit * 8) = $800 prorated annual award. For spring, you would receive half this amount.
Fergus Area College Foundation offers a variety of scholarships to both first and second-year students, full and part-time, for classes taken at M State.
