North Star Promise Scholarship Program (Fall 2024)

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.

Early Recruitment Scholarship

The Northland Foundation also offers Early Recruitment Scholarships to incoming students a year before they begin at Northland.

Minnesota Paramedic Scholarship

The Office of Higher Education is offering a temporary scholarship for Minnesota residents completing a paramedic diploma or degree. Scholarships will be awarded to students enrolled for Fall 2024 semester. Approximately 600 scholarships will be provided on a first come first serve basis for up to $5,000/student. The MN Paramedic Scholarship is now open.

Frequently Asked Questions

Scholarships are established by individuals who care deeply about Northland Community and Technical College and its students. Some donors are Northland alumni, who were themselves the beneficiaries of student aid. There are different types of scholarships: Endowed and Annual.

Selection is based on a student’s match with a scholarship’s criteria.

  • We ask that our scholarship students connect with the donors who sponsor their scholarships each year. One option is to write a thank you card to your scholarship donor.
  • Additionally, we host a Scholarship Celebration for students and donors. All scholarship recipients, as well as donors, are invited to this event. We expect that scholarship recipients will attend this event.
  • There may be additional opportunities to meet your donor. For example, if your donor comes to campus, we may reach out to set up an in-person meeting for lunch or coffee. Also, we may ask you to share a testimony about the impact of scholarship support at Northland for marketing materials.

No problem. The Academic Success Center has tutors available to assist you.
