At the University of North Dakota, students are our top priority. We believe that an outstanding, affordable education should be attainable for every student. When you support scholarships at UND, you:
- Provide life-changing financial support: Students have access to comprehensive financial aid packages, easing the financial burden of obtaining their degree. More than anything, scholarships help keep students at UND.
- Recruit future leaders: High-caliber students will continue to choose to attend the University of North Dakota.
- Elevate the campus community: With healthy enrollment numbers, UND will continue to be a steadfast cultural and economic driver in North Dakota and beyond.
Your gift today will provide our future leaders with opportunities to advance in their education and careers. We offer a variety of ways to enrich the student experience here at UND. Gifts can be made in pledges over 5 years.
Opportunities for Impact
UND is regarded as one of the top institutions in the nation for educational quality and affordability. However, the average student will pay $11,250 in tuition costs each year. One-time scholarships help to ease that financial burden.
We have the most diverse and academically prepared student body in UND’s 138-year history. Merit-based scholarships help our University retain these high-caliber students. In fact, 83% of students who receive a merit-based scholarship return for their second year.
Endowments can be created with gifts of cash, securities, and other assets. Although the minimum amount required to create an endowment fund is $25,000, larger amounts are recommended or required for certain purposes. Gifts at these levels may offer donors naming opportunities.

The UND Open Door Scholarship provides financial assistance to help students experiencing a financial hardship that prevents them from finishing their academic degrees. Give to Open Door Scholarships.
