North Star Promise Scholarship

Beginning in Fall 2024, the North Star Promise (NSP) Scholarship program will create a tuition and fee-free pathway to higher education for eligible Minnesota Residents at eligible institutions. The NSP scholarship is considered a “last-dollar” program by covering the balance of tuition and fees remaining after other scholarships, grants, stipends, and tuition waivers have been applied. 

Eligible students must:

  • Be a Minnesota resident.
  • Have a family Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) below $80,000 (FAFSA or MN Dream Act application).
  • Attend a Minnesota public higher education institution or Tribal College.
  • Not be in default on a state or federal student loan.
  • Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards.
  • Have not already earned a baccalaureate degree.
  • Be enrolled in a program or course of study that applies to a degree, diploma, or certificate.
