Scholarship offerings cover a variety of categories including vocational/technical schools, military family, community service and continuing college students. Every student who is graduating or has graduated from a North Dakota high school can apply. Communities with local chapters also offer scholarships for students from their specific school.
The application deadline for all North Dakota Dollars for Scholars scholarships is April 1, 2019. Scholarship details and the online application are available at nddfs.org. To apply, students must create or update a profile in the online student center. This profile allows students to be matched to scholarships based on their personal information. Students may use this profile to find opportunities from their local high school chapter if it is active, North Dakota Dollars for Scholars and the national Dollars for Scholars organization.
