Sara J. Dobberteen Memorial Scholarship

The Sara J. Dobberteen scholarship has been created by her family in memory of Sara J. Dobberteen, a librarian at Minneapolis Technical College from 1992 to 1997. Sara loved helping students find whatever they needed; she had a special appreciation for students returning to school later in life and juggling family responsibilities. She also delighted in meeting students who came to Minneapolis from around the world as she was a terrific traveler with a true interest in other cultures.

The ideal candidate would be one who exhibits hard work through academic achievement and who possesses a clear financial need due to family responsibilities. The scholarship is to be used for books, child care, and transportation--any expenses that would get in the way of attending MCTC.
Award: $1,000 per year ($500 per semester)
