Scholarship Application Criteria

Special consideration will be given to students who have received an award letter from HTC. The Hennepin Technical College Financial Aid code is 010491.

HTC Foundation scholarships are included in the total financial aid award and may impact other forms of financial aid.  Whenever possible, loan assistance is adjusted first. Work-study positions may also need to be adjusted when a scholarship is awarded.

Applicants must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits and have a financial aid eligible major unless different criteria is indicated. Priority will be given to students taking 12 or more credits.

The selection committee may request verification of attendance, academic progress, and class standing from instructors.

Scholarship awards are to be used for the current semester only, unless designated by donor as continuing scholarships.

Scholarship awards will be used to offset the cost of tuition and fees and will be credited to the student’s tuition account. If the award is greater than the balance due, a check will be issued to the student.

Scholarship recipients are required to meet and maintain all eligibility requirements including Satisfactory Academic Progress as described in the HTC Student Handbook at the time of disbursement in order to be eligible for any scholarship funds.

Decisions of the HTC Foundation Scholarship committee are final. The selection committee handles all application information in a professional and confidential manner.
