North Dakota Scholarship

The purpose of the new North Dakota Scholarship is to align scholarship requirements to the Choice Ready initiative. One thing to keep in mind is that the requirements will align to Choice Ready, but will be more rigorous than what is required for Choice Ready. Like the Academic and CTE Scholarships, the new North Dakota Scholarship is worth $6,000.

The North Dakota Scholarship has several components. The first component is the essential skills. All students must fulfill the requirements of the essential skills in order to be eligible for the scholarship. The next three components are Post-Secondary Ready, Workforce Ready, and Military. Students must meet 2 of those 3 components to be eligible. Any student that meets the essential skill requirements, as well as 2 of the 3 (Post-Secondary Ready, Workforce Ready, and Military Ready) components qualifies for the North Dakota Scholarship. Please see the North Dakota Scholarship Framework for specific details on the requirements of each component of the North Dakota Scholarship Requirements.

Eligibility for initial and subsequent disbursements are based on full-time enrollment at an accredited higher education institution in North Dakota (both public and private), maintenance of a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale, and progression toward degree completion*.  Eligibility criteria is reviewed each semester.  Students may be eligible for up to $6,000 within six academic school years (do not have to be consecutive) after graduation for undergraduate and/or graduate courses.

*For purposes of North Dakota scholarship eligibility under this section, “full-time” has the same meaning as the term is defined by the institution the student is attending.

**For the purpose of North Dakota scholarship eligibility under this section, “progress toward degree completion” means earning the following minimum number of credits after each semester or quarter term disbursement to qualify for the subsequent disbursement:

(1) Twenty-four credits after disbursement two;

(2) Thirty-nine credits after disbursement three;

(3) Fifty-four credits after disbursement four;

(4) Sixty-nine credits after disbursement five;

(5) Eighty-four credits after disbursement six; and

(6) Ninety-nine credits after disbursement seven.
