Why Apply for National Scholarships?
The University of North Dakota and other entities offer grants, loans, and other financial aid to assist students in covering their basic educational costs. A number of national and international organizations also offer scholarships and fellowships to develop knowledge and skills beyond the classroom setting or to study in highly competitive graduate programs.
National scholarships provide high-performing students exceptional opportunities to experience learning and academic training at the highest levels. For example, the Truman Scholarship gives its scholars up to $30,000 for graduate study in public-service fields, plus access to a 10-week summer internship in Washington. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers scholarships for students to study, conduct research and/or teach English for a full academic year abroad.
National Scholarship Awardees
