Registration and Scholarships
Here is all the information you need to successfully sign up for two days of fun with your grandchild at Winona State University. Scholarships are also available to help defray participation costs.
When does registration open?
When does registration close?
Registration closes when each session reaches capacity. If minimum enrollment is not met, complete refunds will be issued to all registrants.
Are scholarships available?
The Winona State University Retiree Center is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships for Grandparents University. Thanks to the generous support of friends, retirees and businesses, we will offer scholarships to cover partial funding of participation based on family income.
Important Note: If your participation in Grandparents University is contingent upon receiving a scholarship, please refrain from registering for Grandparents University until you have received notification of a scholarship award.

How can I register?
We apologize for the delay in online registration availability for Grandparents University 2017. We are now offering paper registration forms instead.
Please print and mail the 2017 Grandparents University Registration form (PDF) to the Retiree Center with an enclosed check payment. You may also drop off the forms and payment at the Retiree Center (Alumni House, 227 W. Wabasha, Winona, MN).
We will have paper copies of the registration form available at the Retiree Center if you’d rather not print at home.
