MN Office of Higher Education Summer Enrichment Stipends

The Minnesota Office of Higher Education (OHE) provides stipends on a first-come, first-served basis, to cover all or a portion of the direct cost for students in grades 3-11 to attend eligible summer academic enrichment programs.

The stipends through the Minnesota Office of Higher Education have all been awarded. However, you are encouraged to submit a completed application to get your name on a wait list in the event stipends become available through cancellations. These stipends will be awarded to the next person on the list as(if) they become available. (Hopefully, that is you!)

If you haven’t received notice from Concordia Language Villages of a stipend becoming available within a week before your camp session, you can call in and cancel the session and your deposit will be refunded. Unfortunately, there are no other scholarships available at this time.

If you have any questions, please email
