Scholarship Recipients to be Honored at Northland Foundation Scholarship Ceremonies

Over $230,000 in scholarships awarded at both of Northland's campuses

March 14, 2022 – Northland Community & Technical College is proud to honor students who have been awarded Northland Community & Technical College Foundation scholarships for the spring semester and recognize its donors. A ceremony will be held on the East Grand Forks campus on Wednesday, March 16, at 2:00 p.m. A similar ceremony will be held on the Thief River Falls Campus on Thursday, March 24, at 12:00 p.m.

As part of its mission to enhance the educational experience of students, the Northland Foundation offers scholarship opportunities semi-annually to current and incoming students. With the generous support and investments from individuals and local businesses, the Northland Foundation has distributed over $415,000 during the 2021-2022 academic year in scholarships from the foundation as well as other State of Minnesota initiatives. Over 170 Northland Foundation scholarships totaling nearly $100,000 were awarded to students on both the East Grand Forks and Thief River Falls campuses this semester.

“This is a record-breaking year for scholarships distributed with over $230,000 awarded between fall semester, spring semester, and our Minnesota Department of Agriculture scholarships. An additional $186,000 was awarded for Workforce Development Scholarships from the State of Minnesota,” exclaimed Lars Dyrud, Northland Foundation Executive Director. “Northland is the affordable choice for workforce training in our region. Scholarships make it an even better choice. Thanks to our generous donors, we are making a difference in the lives of students!”
