Dennis Frandsen, the principal of the Frandsen Family Foundation, is once again offering all Braham High School Class of 2020 seniors and home-schooled seniors a 2-year paid scholarship to Pine Technical and Community College (PTCC) starting the fall of 2020. This applies only to those attending or living within the Braham School district their entire senior year.
The Frandsen Family Foundation scholarship will cover any remaining tuition and fees after the student’s Federal Pell Grant and State grants have been applied to the student’s account. A stipend of $1,000, for the 2 years, for books, tools and supplies will also be awarded.
The Braham Schools strongly encourage students to consider completing their first two years of college at PTCC, after which credits may be transferable to another college to complete a 4-year degree if that is their desire.
Braham Area Schools has also been teaching college courses while students are still in high school. The exciting news is 41% of Braham juniors and seniors from this last school year earned college credit for free.
Students may earn an associates degree without leaving the building and this degree is transferable to all public colleges in Minnesota. This has been accomplished through Braham’s ECCO program, which allows our qualifying students to earn these credits while taking online college courses from the comfort of being right here at Braham Area Schools.
