  • Scholarship Description
  • The North Dakota State Student Incentive Grant Program provides approximately 2,500 non-repayable grants to North Dakota residents pursuing their undergraduate degree and who attend North Dakota's public, private (not-for-profit), and tribal colleges. The purpose of this need-based grant is to assist students with their cost of attending a North Dakota post-secondary institution. A State Grant also reduces the amount of money a student needs to borrow for his or her education.

    To be eligible for State Grant consideration, a student must meet all of the following requirements:
    - be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States and a North Dakota resident
    - be a high school graduate, or hold a General Equivalency Diploma (GED), and be able to meet all admission requirements as a full-time student of an eligible institution
    - use the Grant at an eligible college in North Dakota
    - enroll as a full-time student as defined by the college you attend
    - enroll in a program of at lease one academic year as defined by your college
    - be a first-time undergraduate student during the period of award
    - not be in default on any federal financial aid loans
    - not owe a refund on any Title IV grants or loans

    The only application needed is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Deadline for priority consideration is April 15th. Please note that the priority deadline here is only for the ND State Grant Program. It may not be the same as the priority consideration deadline for other financial aid awards at individual colleges and universities. Please contact the financial aid or admissions office on your campus for more information.
