The Minnesota Daily Alumni Association awards up to two $1,000 scholarships per semester to current Minnesota Daily employees. Our goal is to recognize extraordinary student employees who go above and beyond in their commitment to the Daily, as well as display academic merit and financial need. Editorial, business, and administrative employees are encouraged to apply. The application process typically begins in October and February.
Requirements: Applicants must be a current Minnesota Daily employee and a full-time University of Minnesota student. They must also have a minimum 2.7 GPA and be in good standing with the Daily, as defined by its human resources department. Applications should include a resume, unofficial transcript copy and a one-page letter explaining the applicant’s merits. Finalists must also be available to participate in a formal interview with the alumni association’s board of directors.
Additional Terms: Members of the Office of the Publisher are not eligible to apply. Applicants may receive the alumni scholarship only once. The MDAA reserves the right to contact applicants for additional information.
Please direct questions to your Office of the Publisher representative, or contact MDAA scholarships coordinator Dan Haugen.
This program is sustained through donations from our supporters. You can help support the MDAA Scholarship Program here.
