Honors Apprentice Scholarship recipients will apprentice five hours a week with a faculty or staff mentor on research or creative activities (see the sample HAS positions). Apprenticeship positions are available from a wide variety of academic and administrative departments and involve internship-level work (not work-study, general office duties, or homework hours).
High School Seniors with an ACT composite score of 28* or higher and rank in the top 5%* of high school class are eligible to apply for an Honors Apprentice Scholarship (HA). A separate application is mailed to eligible high school seniors. This award is $20,000 ($5,000 annually for four years based on academic performance). Opportunities to apprentice in an area of academic interest under the supervision of a faculty member are available. If awarded, the HA Scholarship replaces the President's Honors Scholarship.
Students in the second semester of the sophomore year or later, maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or greater are eligible to apply. Current MSUM and incoming transfer students are eligible to apply. A letter of endorsement from an MSUM faculty member, proposing how the applicant will be engaged in an apprentice relationship under the faculty member's supervision, must be submitted along with the application. The scholarship is $5,000 per year for tuition for the final two years of a student's attendance.
The application is through the MSUM Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid.
