North Dakota University System/North Dakota Scholars Program

The purpose of the ND Scholars Scholarship is to retain within ND, the brightest and best students who are pursuing post-secondary education. The scholarship amount equates to the tuition charged at the Scholar's eligible institution, not to exceed the highest regular resident undergraduate tuition rate in the NDUS system. This program provides merit-based, full-tuition scholarships to ND high school graduates who attend a qualifying college within ND. High school juniors who score in the top 95th percentile of all ND ACT test-takers prior to July 1 of the year preceding their freshman year of college will be considered as a candidate for this award. Not all eligible students will qualify due to limited appropriations. Students are ranked based on ACT test scores. This scholarship is renewable for up to three years. Recipients must be enrolled at qualifying institutions in ND at full-time status (12 cr. minimum per semester) and must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.50. Only 40-50 new awards are made each year to new students.
