[ad_1]

The Minnesota Association of Townships announces its 2022 scholarship program, which will award up to five scholarships of $ 2,000 to high school students. All students currently enrolled in Grade 11 and attending a Minnesota public, private, or parochial school, or home study program, are eligible.

Applicants must submit a written essay using critical thinking on the topic of promoting awareness to the township government by May 1. The winners will be chosen by an independent jury and will be notified in August. They will also be invited to attend the MAT annual conference in October.

The 2022 essay question is: “The Minnesota Association of Townships has a responsibility to promote public understanding of the heritage and future of township government and its role in the state and federal systems. In what ways could MAT promote awareness of township government and inspire township residents and boards of directors to get involved? ”

Since its inception in 2001, the MAT scholarship program has received over 2,000 applications and 92 laureates.
