History Player Scholarship

Thank you for your interest in the History Player Scholarship Program. Due to unprecedented demand, scholarship funds for the 2013-2014 school year have been expended and are no longer available. Please check back next fall for 2014-2015 History Player Scholarship information.

The Minnesota Historical Society’s History Player Scholarship makes it possible for eligible schools and organizations to enjoy discounted or free educational programs delivered by historic characters from Minnesota’s past.

Regular program costs for a History Player visit are: $150 for one 45-minute presentation, $100 for a second presentation, and $50 for all additional presentations.

See the History Player characters that are available.
