MMCI Scholarship



When it comes to promoting interest in Minneapolis-Moline tractors and machinery, you won't find a more versatile group of MM enthusiasts than those who make up the MM Collectors. The club was organized by MM fans to share knowledge, memorabilia, stories, parts and anything else about Minneapolis-Moline and all of its predecessor companies.

In 1997, to be sure the MM legacy reaches younger generations, the Collectors established an annual scholarship, which is now worth $750. The Minneapolis-Moline Collectors are unique in making a scholarship available each year to anyone who is a current MMCI member, member's child or grandchild. The applicant must attend either a vocational school, a two year college, or a four year college Each applicant is selected based on answers to three questions: What are your education goals? What are your future plans following your education? And, why do you feel you deserve the scholarship?
