New scholarships offered to ND studentsBISMARCK – North Dakota students from the 2009-10 graduating class can apply for two new scholarships.
The state Department of Public Instruction, the state Department of Career and Technical Education and the North Dakota University System are offering the scholarships to high school seniors beginning with this year’s graduating class.
The scholarships were created as part of 2009 legislation to reduce loan indebtedness after college graduation and to encourage and reward high school students for taking more challenging course work in preparation for college and the work force.
Each scholarship is $750 per semester, or $1,500 for the academic year, based on full-time enrollment in an accredited public or private higher education institution in North Dakota.
Students may be eligible for up to $6,000 within six academic years of undergraduate study.
