Central Minnesota Scholarships

Nationally-ranked Colleges Close to Home

In addition to our generous  four-year merit scholarships,  CSB+SJU are offering an additional $1,000 per year to central Minnesota students who have not yet applied. 

You've grown up with CSB+SJU in your backyard so you likely know we are nationally-ranked colleges that offer the abundant opportunities of a larger university combined with the small class sizes and personal attention of an exceptional liberal arts college. We are the top two colleges in Minnesota for finding a job after graduation and 90 percent of our students graduate in just four years. Imagine receiving a world-class education while still being able to zip home for a home-cooked meal and to snuggle your favorite pet! And don't forget, we're nationally ranked for study abroad too – more than 50 percent of our students spend a semester in another country. Bottom line: CSB+SJU can be as close to home or as far away as you make it.
