About MinneAnalytics Scholarships

MinneAnalytics offers scholarships to undergrad students who display a passion for pursuing a career in analytics and a commitment to engaging with the community. The number of awards has increased annually since 2015. In 2020, awards in the amount of $1000 were issued to 27 students from colleges and universities across the Midwest.

How to apply

We are now accepting applications for 2021 MinneAnalytics Scholarships. If you are a faculty or staff member and would like to offer an award at your college or university, fill out this form. Once approved, participating schools will be asked to select a student meeting scholarship criteria to receive a $1,000 award.

The student selected must meet the following criteria:

  • Current undergraduate student pursuing a degree in field related to data analytics
  • Displays passion for pursuing a career directly related to data science and analytics
  • Ongoing commitment to community engagement

Scholarships are limited to one per department or school per year. Multiple departments or schools from the same college or university may be submitted. You may present the award in the spring or fall, and we can send the funds directly to the student, the department, or your foundation.

The scholarships are part of $100K in funding approved by the board for education initiatives in 2021, which will also support the MinneMUDAC Student Data Science Challenge tentatively planned for Fall 2021. 

Application Form

Please note: this form is for faculty and staff use only. We encourage interested students to inquire with your college as to their participation and feel free to direct them here.
