NDSU to award $50,000 in scholarships to adult learners

Posted on 4/16/2012

North Dakota State University received a $50,000 grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation to be used as scholarships for adult learners who are beginning college or returning to college to finish an undergraduate degree.

"This is an exciting opportunity for NDSU to expand our undergraduate population base," said Kate Haugen, associate vice president for Student Affairs at NDSU. "This also parallels a North Dakota State University System initiative called Non-traditional No More, which works to provide services and assistance for adult learners.

For the 2012-13 academic year, NDSU will award at least 10 scholarships of up to $5,000 each to adult learners. Osher Re-entry Scholars must:

·      Have a cumulative gap of five years or more in their education
·      Be an undergraduate student pursuing a first degree
·      Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
·      Have the potential to be in the workforce for a significant period of time following graduation
·      Demonstrate financial need
·      Show academic promise and a commitment to obtaining a degree
·      Be a full-time or part-time student

Osher Re-entry Scholarship applications are available at the NDSU Office of Admission. Call 701-231-8643 for an application. 

NDSU is an economic engine of the state, a top-ranked - and growing - national research power.
