2014 MDAW Application with Standard Scholarship

Minnesota OHE Grant

The Minnesota Office of Higher Education has renewed its Summer Academic Enrichment program for 2014 summer camps! The Summer Academic Enrichment program will provide stipends on a first-come, first-serve basis, to cover all or a portion of the direct cost for students in middle and high school to attend eligible summer academic enrichment programs during the summer of 2014.

Here is the information that you need to know – the sooner we get students signed up the better – once the money is gone, it is gone. The MN OHE Grant applications are due by March 21st, 2014! 

The MN OHE Grant Application

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Students must be a MN resident
  • Students must be eligible for Free or Reduced Lunch
  • Students must have a minimum of a C average

If you qualify, be sure to apply ASAP!

Students who believe they are eligible should email Amy Cram Helwich to get them signed up for the grant. Students/families are also asked to pay a $25 fee, as the grant does not cover the entire cost of 2 weeks at camp; those that can not afford the fee will be asked to pay what they can or even have the fee waived if needed. We want to get as many kids to camp as possible.

For more information on the MDAW or for questions, please contact us.
