In Minnesota we have a serious shortage of people with skills to work in certain areas of our economy.  The shortage of workers is most critical in advanced manufacturing, agriculture, health care services, information technology, early childhood education, and transportation.

In 2017, the MN legislature put up a million dollars for a pilot program that offered workforce development scholarships of 25 hundred dollars to attract students into these careers.
