Agribusiness and Applied Economics Scholarships

The Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics annually awards approximately $50,000 to students in Agribusiness and Applied Economics who demonstrate initiative and scholastic achievement. All Agribusiness and Agricultural Economics majors are encouraged to check specific scholarship application criteria regardless of grade point average since several scholarships are awarded on a geographical basis, on a need basis only, or other specific qualifications. Recipients of departmental scholarships are selected by the Agribusiness and Applied Economics Scholarship Committee. 

Beginning December 1, 2016, scholarship applications are being accepted online through March 1, 2017.

To complete the online scholarship application, please use the following link https://www.ndsu.edu/onestop/finaid/scholarships/ and click on the "apply now" button. Sign in using your blackboard credentials. Click on "complete your general application" at the top of the page.

In order to see information on scholarships specific to the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources or your department, use the show filters button.

For general information, you can refer to the Online Scholarship Application Video Instructions found on the scholarship home page.

There are External Scholarship Opportunities administered outside of NDSU that are listed on the scholarship home page. These are scholarships that have separate application procedures. Follow instructions that are specific to these scholarships. They may also have their own deadlines.

Be sure to observe the criteria and deadline for each scholarship.  It is the student's responsibility to submit the application and respond to all additional information requested. 

Scholarships are also available to high school seniors and transfer students who plan to major in Agricultural Economics or Agribusiness. Applications may be completed online or downloaded and returned to the Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department. Mailing instructions are included on the form. 

Loans, grants, and general scholarships are available through the University Financial Aid Office. There are also a number of scholarships awarded each year to students enrolled in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources. Application for College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources scholarships is done by completing the NDSU General Scholarship form. By listing the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources and their major on this form, students are automatically eligible for all College general scholarships. For more information and a listing of scholarships available through the College, see College of Ag Scholarship Program.

Several scholarships are also available from organizations outside the Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department. These scholarships must be applied for separately from Agribusiness and Applied Economics Departmental Scholarships and many have application due dates which differ from the Departmental due date. Recipients of these other scholarships are selected by the individual organizations.
