Has your college-bound student recently applied to the North Dakota State College of Science? Perhaps you have a son or daughter 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 massive amounts of paperwork you’ve been putting off, finally get completed and turned in. And just in case you’ve spaced it, the 2013-14 NDSCS Scholarship Application is due Friday, February 1, 2013.
Scholarships at NDSCS are sponsored by contributions from friends, alumni and the business community. To apply for a scholarship, you must complete a Scholarship Application by February 1, 2013. Applications received after February will still be accepted, but only considered if current funds are still available.
So how much could your son or daughter 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 3.6 GPA = $1,000
- An ACT score in-between 22-25 with a GPA in the 3.2-3.6 range = $500
To fill out a Scholarship Application online, simply go to ndscs.edu/scholarship-application and complete the form. The Scholarship Application can also be found within the NDSCS Application Packet, located in the Enrollment Services Office.
NDSCS encourages students to apply for outside scholarships as well. Currently, Enrollment Services has information on 35 external scholarship opportunities. To find out more about these scholarship opportunities, check out ndscs.edu/scholarships/external.
Your student may also have luck creating a profile on a popular scholarship search website such as scholarships.com or collegenet.com.
In any event, be sure to get your 2013-14 NDSCS Scholarship Application turned in no later than Friday, February 1. If you have any questions, or for more information, contact Enrollment Services at 701-671-2208.
