CLOQUET — Applications are available for the 2022-2023 Floy Gilman Scheidler Scholarship, according to a news release.

The scholarship was established in 1999 by Floy Bud Dickison, a former Esko High School English teacher, and Ona Maurita Scheidler, former Cloquet High School Business teacher, in memory of their mother.

The $3,000 per year scholarships will be awarded in May to students pursuing post-secondary undergraduate degrees and are renewable for three years for a total of $12,000. Application forms are available from the counselors’ offices of Carlton County high schools; financial offices in area colleges and universities; the AEOA classroom in Cloquet; and Ameriprise Financial at 922 Minnesota 33 South in Cloquet.

Completed applications are due by April 1, 2023.

Applicants must be in the top 50 percent of a Carlton County high school graduating class and have earned a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.


Current college students that are residents of Carlton County who graduated from a Carlton County high school and individuals earning a GED are also eligible to apply.

In addition to school achievement, applicants should show participation in non-academic endeavors such as extra-curricular activities, community volunteer work, and/or employment. Financial need is a consideration.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
