Blandin Foundation Scholarships

Blandin Foundation Scholarships – $1,000 to $5,000 per student each year – are for every student of high schools in the Itasca County area and Blackduck, Bug O Nay Ge Shig, Hill City, Northome, and Remer schools, even if you’re not in the top of your class. Homeschooled and online students who would have graduated from one these schools are also eligible.

You can apply if you are under age 25, your household adjusted gross income (AGI) is less than $125,000, and you plan to pursue certificate programs, community technical or tribal college, and colleges or universities anywhere in the United States.
