Our Opportunities

Deadline: There are varying deadline dates for many scholarship opportunities. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to complete the NDSU Academic Scholarship Application or any Supplemental Applications/Questions to receive consideration. Those opportunities that indicate “Ended” may not be open yet. Most scholarship opportunities for incoming freshmen and transfer students open on September 1st and scholarships for currently enrolled NDSU students open on December 1st each year.

Award: The amount stated is for general information purposes and is not a guarantee of what you may receive, if awarded. Actual award amounts can vary based on recipient eligibility, available funds, and other factors.

Actions: Upon completion of the NDSU Academic Scholarship Application and any Supplemental Applications/Questions, you will be automatically matched (based on your application and your NDSU student record) with scholarships for which you meet the criteria. These scholarships indicate “None” under “Action” and require no additional information from you for consideration. Some scholarships indicate “Apply” under “Action” and require additional answers for consideration. A list of these scholarships can be found on your scholarship home page.
