Star Scholars

What is the Star Scholars program?

The Avelino Mills-Novoa Fellowship

The Star Scholar Program, similar to the Power of YOU program, is designed to make your dream of attending college tuition-free a possibility.

Students that fall under any of the following statuses may apply: 

  1. DACA ( Deferred Action for childhood arrivals) 
  2. TPS ( Temporary Protected Status) 
  3. U Visa
  4. Other

Star Scholars funding covers the cost of tuition and fees after your state grants are applied (if applicable), for 2 years or up to 72 credits at Minneapolis Community and Technical College (Minneapolis College) and surrounds students with the support they need to succeed!

*If you are a U.S citizen or Legal Permanent Resident (Green Card holder) please apply to the Power of You Program.
 

Deadline to apply and submit all documentation is May 29, 2020. Entrance into the Star Scholar Program will be awarded based on date of application completion and merit.

Star Scholars funds do not pay for books and transportation costs.
