Garden Valley Technologies has begun a search for scholarship candidates. If selected, candidates will receive a one-time $2,000.00 scholarship from the Minnesota Telecom Alliance (MTA) Foundation.
Garden Valley participates in the MTA’s scholarship program and is approaching high schools in their serving area looking for potential scholarship winners. To be eligible, applicants must be attending post-secondary education at a university, college, or technical college; be a Minnesota resident, and the applicant’s family must subscribe to at least one service from Garden Valley. A telecom alliance panel reviews each application and selects the finalists based on applicants’ grades, academic achievements and extra-curricular activities. Preference to receive the scholarships is given to students who have an interest in telecommunications technology and rural communities.
MTA scholarship applications can be obtained online at: https://www.mnta.org/resource/resmgr/MTA_Scholarship_Form_2019.pdf
Once a student has completed the application online, they need to print a copy and attach the required documentation. Applications must be submitted to: CEO/General Manager, Garden Valley Technologies, and P. O. Box 259, Erskine, MN 56535 by February 22, 2019.
“We’re happy to have this chance to make an investment in our community by helping young people get a technical or college education” says Tim Brinkman, CEO/General Manager of Garden Valley. “It makes us all proud when one of the statewide winners is selected from our area.”
