Students are our top priority.
We believe every student should have access to an outstanding, affordable education. When you support scholarships at UND, you:
- Provide life-changing financial support.
- Recruit and retain future leaders.
- Keep enrollment strong.
Opportunities for Impact
Gifts help our future leaders 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.
UND leads the nation in educational quality and affordability. However, the average student will pay $11,250 in tuition costs each year. One-time scholarships help with some of that cost.
We have the most diverse and prepared student body in UND’s history. Merit-based scholarships help UND 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. The minimum amount to create an endowed fund is $25,000, but larger amounts are recommended for certain purposes. Gifts at these levels may offer naming opportunities to donors.
Special Scholarship Initiatives
The UND Open Door Scholarship helps students experiencing financial hardship. It makes it possible for them to finish their degrees. Give to Open Door Scholarships.
