With the increasing tuition costs for UMD students, they are more grateful than ever for the financial support from private scholarships. Annual undergraduate expenses (tuition, fees, room and board and other expenses) at UMD are about $23,000 for Minnesota residents. A student would have to work more than 60 hours a week to cover these costs. Compare this with 1970, when students needed to work only 24 hours to cover expenses at an average public university.
Shown are just a few of the hundreds of UMD students that benefit from scholarships: (L-R) Karli Scheving, Labovitz School of Business and Economics, recipient of the Lawrence and Jennifer Johnson Development Scholarship and the Labovitz Family Scholarship; Sarah O'Conner, School of Fine Arts, recipient of the Dale C. Hagen Art & Design Scholarship; Samantha Berg, College of Education and Human Service Professions, recipient of the UMD Alumni Association Scholarship; Eric Fischer, College of Liberal Arts, recipient of the Ebert Stembler Scholarship; and Rena Wuollet, College of Education and Human Service Professions, recipient of the Kernik Scholarship and the Herbert Sorenson Family Scholarship.
