North Dakota State University is pleased to provide qualified international undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply for the Academic and Cultural Sharing Scholarship. This scholarship offers international undergraduate students the ability to receive a tuition waiver of 50% of the Base Tuition rate, currently a savings of about $8,500 per year. This waiver applies to Non-Resident Tuition rates. This is currently a savings of approximately $8,200 for the 2013-2014 academic year. This scholarship is available to all degree-seeking undergraduate international students who qualify for admission at North Dakota State University, complete the scholarship application and requirements, and hold F-1 student status.
Hold (or will hold) valid F-1 student status (with a valid I-20) *Students eligible for tuition rates other than Non-Resident are not eligible to apply for the scholarship.

Register and maintain at least 12 undergraduate credits each semester
Complete 10 hours of qualified cultural sharing each semester (see examples under Qualified Hours) *Students graduating in May or December of each year are required to submit 10 hours for that semester to

Timely report your service hours to the Office of International Programs (no later than the last day of final examinations each semester)
Because it is a privilege to receive a scholarship from a university, the Office of International Programs (OIP) must ensure that the students who receive the scholarship meet certain requirements in order to remain eligible, and that the recipients are good representatives of the NDSU community. Students who lose the scholarship for any of the above reasons are not eligible to receive the scholarship again. Unfortunately, no appeals are possible.
Please do NOT include the scholarship award as part of your funding when preparing your Financial Documentation and signing the Financial Certification document. If you are admitted to NDSU and are awarded a Scholarship, you will be notified by letter and your I-20 will reflect the amount of the award.
If you are awarded conditional admission to NDSU with participation in the Intensive English Language Program (IELP), and you meet the Academic and Cultural Sharing Scholarship requirements, you will be conditionally awarded the scholarship. The condition of this award is based upon achieving the qualifying, intensive English placement score, during the on-campus test during orientation, which is required to enroll in one or more undergraduate academic courses. Conditional scholarship awards will not be listed on your I-20 until you are registered for one or more undergraduate classes.
