Farmington lawmaker proposes scholarships up to $7,500 for students
Minnesota high school students could get scholarships of up to $7,500 if they graduate early under a proposal pushed by Rep. Pat Garofalo of Farmington and other Republican lawmakers.

"The earlier a student graduates, the more the scholarship would be," Garofalo said.
