Land-Grant Legacy Scholars: Empowering students from Greater Minnesota to make positive impacts in their communities across the state.

The Land-Grant Legacy Scholars (LGLS) Program is a student success and scholarship program that supports students from Greater Minnesota (outside of the seven-county metro area) who are admitted to the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS). Land-Grant Legacy Scholars offers a four-year experience which includes targeted, programmatic elements designed to support students during their time at the University of Minnesota and build community through a cohort model, as well as a financial scholarship worth $20,000 over four years. Through this programming and scholarship support, this unique program benefits students academically, personally, and financially as they pursue their CFANS degree.
