Kick Start Scholarship

ONE YEAR OF FREE TUITION plus a $1000 STIPEND for 2020 high school graduates who receive free or reduced lunch

An undisclosed private family foundation has generously offered to support one year of free tuition plus a $1000 stipend to attend PTCC. The Kick Start Scholarship is being offered to any 2020 graduate in the following school districts whose family was eligible for the Free and Reduced School Meal Program during their senior year: Chisago Lakes, East Central, Hinckley-Finlayson, Isle, Mora, North Branch, Ogilvie, Pine City and Willow River. 

Eligibility for the Free and Reduced School Meal Program can be found on MN Department of Education's Website, or you may also contact your local school district.

If your family is not eligible for this specific opportunity, we offer many other scholarships to make college more affordable.

We encourage you to contact us soon to learn about taking advantage of this offer, the many high demand program options, and any specific admission requirements related to the programs. It is important you begin the process soon as high demand programs may fill.
