Event Description

In this economy, college students need more help than ever affording their college education. Have you heard of the Minnesota State Grant? This grant helps 1 in 4 Bethel students afford their college education by giving them amounts ranging from approximately $100 to more than $8,000, depending on their family's financial situations.

Day at the Capitol is your chance to tell those in the Minnesota Legislature how Bethel has impacted your life, why private colleges such as Bethel are important for the state of Minnesota, and why it's important that they help make college affordable.
