Beneficial Scholars Program Essay Contest 2012

The MBA Scholarship Program

The Minnesota Benefit Association sponsors an annual scholarship program. Over the last 50 years scholarships have been awarded to hundreds of  members and their families; we are proud to deliver this program enabling students from communities across  Minnesota to continue their education.

Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academic achievement, vocational goals, employment history, community involvement and an original essay. Scholarship application forms are available by November 1 of each year at school, city and county offices throughout the state. Completed applications must be postmarked by April 15.

The scholarships are funded in part by the MBA endorsed benefit providers and in part by contributions from MBA members. If you would like to make a contribution to this very worthwhile program, you may make a donation.
