Wait the scholarship info is in the email? Huh I thought it was only via snail mail. So you got the email today? When did you get the phone call, yesterday?
As for residency, I think it's difficult if your primary purpose for being there is school. I think after you rent an apartment and live there a couple months (maybe try to get a job there this summer?) and apply for a driver's license that would help. You know, somehow demonstrate an interest in staying post graduation. Also might depend on your age--if you're under 25 and your parents don't live in Minnesota (especially if you receive financial "gifts" from them) you might have trouble. This is of course pure speculation on my part and I am not an accountant or anything.
