ND Scholars Program

The North Dakota Scholars Program, a merit-based scholarship, provides approximately 40-45 new freshmen scholarships to North Dakota's best and brightest high school graduates to encourage them to remain in North Dakota to obtain their post-secondary training.

To be eligible for consideration of a North Dakota Scholars Scholarship, a high school senior must score in the upper fifth percentile of all North Dakota ACT test takers.  Only students who take the ACT test between October 1 and July 1 of the year preceding their senior year of high school are eligible for the scholarship consideration.  No application is required as the NDUS uses scores received directly from ACT, Inc.  The student's highest ACT score, between the period October 1 and July 1 will be utilized for eligibility purposes. 

The North Dakota Scholars Scholarship is a full tuition scholarship for students attending North Dakota's public and tribal colleges and a tuition scholarship equal to NDSU/UND's tuition for students attending North Dakota's private institutions. The North Dakota Scholars Scholarship is renewable for up to three years provided the recipient maintains a cumulative 3.50 grade point average.
