Scholarship Program

The College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources at North Dakota State University provides one of the best college-based scholarship programs in the Upper Midwest. Colleges of Agriculture around the country
frequently have excellent scholarship programs because our alumni and the industries we support understand the value of investing in students.

Scholarships range from $100 to $3,000 per year. Some students receive one or more scholarships every year of their college career, depending on the student’s academic performance. The college selectively matches several of its scholarships for gifted incoming freshmen with scholarships administered by the Office of Admission.

Funds for scholarships are provided by individuals, companies, foundations and organizations who are aware of the commitment a student must make to complete a college education. They established these scholarships to encourage students who are enrolled in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources to pursue academic excellence. Scholarship recipients and donors are recognized at a luncheon held on campus each year.

The scholarships and awards are divided into two categories:

General Scholarships awarded to students enrolled in the college, regardless of their major program of study.

Program Scholarshipsawarded through departments or other academic units in the college to students enrolled in their specific academic programs.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible to be considered for a College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources scholarship if you are classified as a student in the college according to the Office of Registration and Records. Eligibility and awards are
contingent on sustained enrollment in the college as a full time student in good standing through the semester(s) during which the scholarships are disbursed. Scholarships with a value equal to, or in excess of, $900 will be split with half
disbursed at the beginning of fall semester and the remaining amount disbursed at the beginning of spring semester.
Scholarships with a value less than $900 will be disbursed at the beginning of fall semester. If a student is awarded a
scholarship that is split between the semesters, but graduates or leaves the university after fall semester, the spring semester award will not be provided. Students who do not sustain enrollment in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources through the semester in which the funds are disbursed may be asked to return all, or part of, their scholarship. Most scholarships are awarded based on scholastic merit, not financial need. Some scholarships have specific eligibility qualifications. These qualifications are listed with the scholarships in this booklet.
