Farmington lawmaker proposes scholarships up to $7,500 for students

Email

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.

Garofalo said that his proposal would save nearly $25 million in the next two years because fewer high school students would be in schools.

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