• ND Academic and CTE Scholarship Opportunities

     

    Any resident student who graduates from high school and meets all eligibility requirements may receive a North Dakota Academic Scholarship or a North Dakota Career and Technical Education Scholarship in the amount of $750 per semester or $1,500 for the academic year to attend an accredited college in North Dakota, both public and private.  The scholarships are renewable provided the student is enrolled full time and maintains a 2.75 GPA.  Students may be eligible for up to $6000 within six academic school years (do not have to be consecutive) after high school graduation.

    The current Academic and CTE Scholarships will sunset after the class of 2024 graduates, and starting with the graduating class of 2025, students will ONLY be able to qualify using the new North Dakota State Scholarship requirements.
