North Dakota Dollars for Scholars to provide scholarships to students
North Dakota Dollars for Scholars (NDDFS) is accepting scholarship applications from North Dakota high school seniors and college students. Scholarships ranging from $500 to $15,000 will be awarded for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Applicants must be graduating from, or currently live in, a North Dakota community with an active NDDFS chapter to qualify. Students from a wide range of backgrounds are encouraged to submit applications. The scholarship offerings cover a variety of categories: need-based, vocational/technical schools, military family, health care, leadership, community service and emergency medical response.
The application deadline for all scholarships is Monday, April 1. Scholarship details and applications are available at www.nddfs.org. To apply, students must create a profile in the online student center. This profile allows students to be matched to online scholarship applications based on their personal information. Students will also be able to use this profile to find future opportunities from NDDFS and national organizations.
NDDFS is a statewide non-profit administered by Bank of North Dakota and a board of directors. The organization provides academic support and financial aid to North Dakota students. Local chapters in 84 locations throughout the state also raise funds to provide scholarships to students from their own community. Since its inception in 1962, Dollars for Scholars chapters in North Dakota have raised $25.5 million which has been distributed to more than 20,000 students. It is the largest, volunteer operated, community-based foundation in the country.
