First Ever $10,000 MHTF Scholarship Available for the Computer Science Undergraduate Student

by Son Huynh

Minnesota High Tech Foundation Scholarships As a sister organization of the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA), the Minnesota High Tech Foundation (MHTF) was created  in 1985 to promote and support Minnesota’s technology-based economy through education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

To fulfill the mission of strengthening Minnesota’s future technology workforce and encourage high standards in education, scholarships are available for students in STEM disciplines.   At this years  Tekne Awards, nearly 1,000 watched as nine beneficiaries each received $2,000 MHTF scholarships to assist their pursuits of STEM knowledge.

Applications for the next round of general $2,000 STEM scholarships have closed, but thanks to a generous donation by Thomson Reuters, the Minnesota High Tech Foundation is offering one final $10,000 scholarship specifically for undergraduate Computer Science majors.
