The First of Many

Here is the first class of scholarship recipients from the largest endowment in NDSU’s history, donated by Doosan and Bobcat Company. The company’s gift of $3 million was matched by the state of North Dakota, adding $1.5 million to create an endowment that will distribute about $180,000 in scholarships per year in perpetuity. The scholarships go to students in STEM — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. As Rich Goldsbury, president of Doosan and Bobcat Company, says: “STEM-related fields help fuel innovation, which is exactly what we need to move our businesses and communities forward.”

Congratulations to the students and thank you to Doosan and Bobcat Company and the state of North Dakota.
