Two NDSU students have been awarded the 2016-17 NDSU Women's Club Scholarship. Colette Bersie, a junior majoring in marketing and management, and senior instrumental education major Theresa Schlangen were selected from a competitive applicant pool for their academic achievement, leadership and community service. They each receive a $1,000 scholarship for the 2016-17 academic year. They also will receive a complimentary one-year membership to the NDSU Women's Club.
The students were honored at the organization’s fall event Sept. 12.

• Cumulative grade point average at NDSU of 3.2 or above at the end of the previous fall semester
• Female student from North Dakota, South Dakota or Minnesota
• Junior or senior status during the upcoming fall semester, regardless of age;
