Scholarships

Body

Scholarships are gifts. They don't need to be repaid. There are thousands of them, offered by NDSU, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, communities, religious groups, and professional and social organizations.

The College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources at North Dakota State University provides one of the best college-based scholarship programs in the Upper Midwest. Colleges of Agriculture around the country frequently have excellent scholarship programs because our alumni and the industries we support understand the value of investing in students.

Scholarships range from $100 to $14,000 per year. Some students receive one or more scholarships every year of their college career, depending on the student’s academic performance. The college selectively matches several of its scholarships for gifted incoming freshmen with scholarships administered by the Office of Admission.

Funds* for scholarships are provided by individuals, companies, foundations and organizations that are aware of the commitment a student must make to complete a college education. They established these scholarships to encourage students who are enrolled in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources to pursue academic excellence. Scholarship recipients and donors are recognized at a luncheon held on campus each fall.

*All funds must be deposited in the NDSU Foundation and Alumni Association in order to be recognized as part of the scholarship program. They act as custodian of the funds and distribute them as authorized by the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources.

The scholarships and awards are divided into two categories:

College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources General Scholarships — awarded to students enrolled in the college, regardless of their major program of study.

Program Scholarships — awarded through departments or other academic units in the college to students enrolled in their specific academic programs.
