Has your college-bound student recently applied to NDSCS? Perhaps you have a family member returning to campus next year. With things finally settling down in the New Year, now is the time to make sure that all of those applications and piles of paperwork you’ve been putting off finally get completed and turned in. And just in case you’ve spaced it, the 2015-16 NDSCS Scholarship Application is due Monday, February 1, 2016.
Scholarships at NDSCS are sponsored by contributions from friends, alumni and the business community. To apply for a scholarship, your student must complete a Scholarship Application by February 1, 2016. Applications received after February will still be accepted, but only considered if current funds are still available.
So how much could your family member potentially receive in a scholarship from NDSCS? Your student will automatically qualify for a general NDSCS academic scholarship if the following criteria are met:
- An ACT score of 25 combined with a 6 GPA = $1,000
- An ACT score in-between 22-25 with a GPA in the 2-3.6 range = $500
To fill out a Scholarship Application online, simply click here to complete the form. The Scholarship Application can also be found in the Enrollment Services Office located in Haverty Hall in Wahpeton.
NDSCS encourages students to apply for outside scholarships as well. Currently, Enrollment Services has information on almost 100 external scholarship opportunities. To find out more about these scholarship opportunities, click here.
In any event, be sure to get the 2015-16 NDSCS Scholarship Application turned in no later than Monday, February 1. If you have any questions, or for more information, contact Enrollment Services at 701-671-2521.
