Travelers EDGE Scholarship Program
The Travelers EDGE Scholarship is made possible through the generosity of the Travelers Companies and is focused on preparing students for careers in the insurance and financial services industry. Our Travelers EDGE Scholars come to Metropolitan State from Travelers EDGE partner programs at Century College, Inver Hills Community College, Saint Paul College, Augsburg College, and the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota.
Many of our scholars transfer in from another Travelers EDGE program but some years there are open spots for current and newly admitted Metropolitan State students. [Call to Action Button] Fill out an application [Links to Scholarship application page]
