The goals of the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium are: to identify, recruit, and retain students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics; to encourage women and underrepresented students to enter these fields of study; and to increase NASA activities and awareness in North Dakota. Undergraduate scholarships will be awarded each school year. The amount of money available for scholarships varies by college. The Office of Financial Aid at each college will determine the number of scholarships awarded and the due date for applications for each school year.
North Dakota Space Grant will continue to provide scholarship funding for outstanding students at North Dakota's public two- and four-year colleges and universities. Scholarships, which are designed for students pursuing STEM degrees that support NASA research and technology needs, are awarded for both the fall and spring semesters. NDSU/UND undergraduate students are not eligible for undergraduate scholarships. Applicants must be a US citizen and have a 3.0 GPA.
