Two other $1,000 scholarships are available to non-traditional students who are pursing post secondary education five or more years after completing high school or receiving a GED. To be eligible students must live within Albert Lea’s service area and plan on an education in the health care field.

Scholarships will be awarded primarily on the basis of commitment and leadership. Academic ability, attitude and values will also be taken into consideration.
