University of Minnesota Duluth

Many scholarships are available to incoming freshmen and current students at UMD. Some scholarships require that a student have financial need or meet certain criteria; others are based upon demonstrated talents or abilities. Most of the scholarships for incoming freshmen can be applied for with the general UMD Scholarship Application, available from the UMD Office of Admissions.

Listings of scholarships for both freshmen and current UMD students can be found on the UMD Financial Aid office's Scholarship web page, at the bottom of the page.

Additionally, each department within the School of Fine Arts has many talent scholarships for returning students - stop in at each department's home office for applications.
