These individuals represent Minnesota companies and higher education institutions and are committed to developing a well-educated technology literate workforce. The Foundation supports diversity in this application and award process.
For the past several years, the MHTA Foundation has supported Minnesota college students with more than $70,000 in annual scholarship awards.
