North Star Promise Scholarship Program

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 as a "last-dollar" program by covering the balance of tuition and fees remaining after other scholarships, grants, stipends and tuition waivers have been applied.

By making college accessible and affordable, NSP is intended to have a positive impact on multiple fronts:

Help stabilize enrollment at Minnesota public institutions of higher education;

Serve as an economic driver for Minnesota by educating qualified workers who are much needed to fill vacancies in the state's labor force;

Create a viable higher education path for Minnesota residents who may have previously thought education was not a possibility for them.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligible students must:

  • Be a Minnesota resident

  • Have a family Adjusted Gross Income* (AGI) as reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Minnesota Dream Act Application below $80,000.
