New December 23, 2019!

The Fergus Area College Foundation Board of Directors approved opening a spring scholarship application for new and current students. FACF offers close to 100 different scholarships through one online scholarship application.

Please note there are currently two applications open, so be sure you are completing the correct one:

Attending Spring 2020 AND Fall 2020 (or applying for 2020-21 academic year only)

If you are a new or current student on the Fergus Falls campus of M State, are not currently receiving a scholarship award for the 2019-20 year and plan to attend next year, please go to this link to apply for this spring and next year awards in one application: https://smr.to/p61624. You only need to complete one application to apply for both award periods!

Attending Spring 2020 and NOT Fall 2020

If you are a new or current student on the Fergus Falls campus of M State, are not currently receiving a scholarship award for the 2019-20 year and do not plan to attend here next year, please use this application: https://smr.to/p63882

Deadline for applying for Spring 2020 scholarships is 11:59 pm on January 8, 2020.

Please use a non-school email you check regularly as award notifications and further directions will be communicated to you through this email.

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 on the Fergus Falls campus (the 8 credits do not include online classes). This means you CAN be a part-time student. If you have the minimum of 8 credits ON the Fergus Falls campus, we will pay up to 4 credits of other M State campus delivery options (online, one of the other 3 campuses) to complete your 12 credits. We will prorate if 8-11 credits. Prorating means we pay per credit. If you are awarded $1200 and only take the required 8 Fergus Falls campus credits, the prorated amount would be ($1200 annual award/12 credits = $100 per credit * 8) = $800 prorated annual award.

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. At least 8 credits have to be taken on the Fergus Falls campus. (If you are attending M State online only or on one of the other M State campuses, you can check with the other foundation to see what might be available.)

Please make sure you provide as many details when completing the application as it will assist us in finding the right scholarship(s) for you.
