What is the Star Scholars program?

The Avelino Mills-Novoa Fellowship

The Star Scholar Program is designed to bring all the benefits of the Power of YOU to eligible undocumented students. Star Scholars funding covers the cost of tuition and fees after your state grants are applied, 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!

Applications are due June 15, 2019 and will be awarded based on date of application completion and merit.

The program currently has 33 Star Scholars, boasting a retention rate of over 88 percent.
