The NDSU Academic Scholarship Application is a competitive online scholarship application for many of the scholarships offered at NDSU. Scholarships are available to all class levels (entering freshmen, transfer, undergraduate, graduate and professional). Applications are reviewed based on your academic record as well as your responses to the questions on the application. To be considered for need-based scholarships through your NDSU Academic Scholarship Application, your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted no later than February 1, 2021. A FAFSA is not required to be considered for merit-based scholarships.
In order to apply or to be considered for a NDSU scholarship, students must be a continuing student or a new student for the academic year. If you are a new student, please make sure you have received an NDSU Student I.D. number and have activated your NDSU account with a valid email address before you attempt to apply. All scholarship applicants must use their NDSU log-in user name and password to access the scholarship application.
You may receive emails from NDSU Academic Scholarship Application if you are selected for a scholarship award or if you need to provide additional information for a scholarship opportunity. To ensure proper e-mail delivery, please add email@example.com to spam filters. All email correspondence will be sent to your NDSU email account. We recommend the use of the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Internet Explorer 11 or Microsoft Edge but highly recommend the latest version of Google Chrome.
