Award amounts vary.

Haglund Financial Relief Scholarship: Available to students in their junior or senior year who no longer qualify for financial aid and are experiencing a significant or unforeseen financial hardship. Awards are aimed at enabling students to complete their degree. GPA is not a factor to receive assistance from the fund, as long as your GPA meets the graduation requirement. Award amounts vary based on need and available funds. To apply, indicate that you want to be considered for need based awards on your application and submit the required essay for the Hakon H. Haglund scholarship.

Greg and Sharon Nelson Family Scholarship:
