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.
The recently established prestigious American Indian Scholarship is designed to encourage and support Native American students interested in pursuing STEM degrees and continuing their education beyond their current enrollment in community college. Eligible applicants must be undergraduates attending a North Dakota tribal college (United Tribes Technical College, Sitting Bull Community College, Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College, Turtle Mountain Community College, and Cankdeska Cikana Community College), and maintain a 3.0 GPA.
