Nathan Renner, a student at Lake Park Audubon High School, is a recipient of a $1,000 Minnesota Power New Generation Scholarship.

Scholarships provide financial assistance to students who attend a higher educational institution in Minnesota Power’s service area and complete degree programs in specified fields of study.


The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation is administering this program on behalf of the Minnesota Power Foundation. Each year they have the difficult task of determining the recipients from many qualified candidates.

“This scholarship program encourages serious students to graduate in fields that align with our region’s workforce needs,” said Minnesota Power Foundation Administrator Aimee Curtis. “It demonstrates a shared commitment by business, higher education, and students themselves to fill vital gaps in our labor force as Baby Boomers retire.

Minnesota Power began this scholarship program in 2008. Learn more at
