The Catch a Break! Scholarship Program has been established to assist highly motivated Minnesota residents who have faced challenges in life and learned from them, and are now enrolling for the first time in post-secondary education. Renewable Scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited public four-year college or university in Minnesota for the entire academic year.

The 2017 program is closed. Please return to this site in November to access the 2018-19 program guidelines and application form.

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America, a division of Scholarship America. the nation's largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals.
