NOTE -  The application process has finished for 2017-18.  Thank you to all who applied - what amazing students we are privileged to meet and interview for MSES.  We have five teams of MSES volunteers who interview at campuses in person: University of MN-Twin Cities, North Dakota State University, MN State University-Mankato, St. Cloud State University and video interviews for the At-Large schools.  It isn't easy then to determine who will receive scholarships, the maximum being $2,000, but we are honored to do so.  We look forward to next year's process for the academic year 2018-19, to start in January 2018.  The scholarship recipients are proudly listed at


2017-18: Fill-in applications are posted below.  We do not yet have all schools deadline or interview dates, those will be posted here as they are determined.  Also, contact to be notified of these updates.

General notes on the scholarship application process:
- If you're interested in applying for a scholarship, please read the cover letter of your school's application; download, complete and follow directions given.  Each school has its own process with deadlines, interviews, and interview teams.
- We give scholarships to Minnesota residents (according to that school's definition).
- Land surveying scholarships are available only to St. Cloud State University students
- Civil engineering scholarships available to all other schools listed.

The informal in-person interviews for the Core schools generally occurs mid-February through March.  Two dedicated MSES Scholarship Committee members look forward to this volunteer opportunity to meet with you informally.  We have four sets of teams to accomodate these schools.

For the At-Large School applications, we are generally not able to interview in person, but will ask for your availability for an online video interview.  The deadline is usually late/February early March and will be noted on the posted application.
