This meeting is held each fall and spring.

You must attend one of these meetings, IF:

  • You are planning to attend graduate school immediately after graduating from Winona

The MRPF Student Scholarship Program is made possible through the Minnesota Recreation and Park Foundation scholarship partner program. The MRPF scholarship program has been created to promote and enable excellence in the field of park and recreation by providing financial assistance to juniors, seniors and graduate students who are majoring in a Minnesota four-year curriculum with a park and recreation emphasis and display excellence in their abilities, leadership qualities, job experience and commitment to the park and recreation field. The scholarship program includes up to five $1,000 scholarships with up to one designated for graduate students and the remainder for undergraduates. These scholarships are not intended for professionals.  Eligibility criteria is listed in the attachments.  Students may also find this information online.
