A scholarship program is now available for a select group of students enrolled at a higher education institution in North Dakota.
The scholarship, known as the Dual Credit Scholarship, is for students who took an eligible dual credit course from an institution in the North Dakota University System while enrolled in a high school in North Dakota. Students who meet the eligibility criteria must complete an application with NDUS and provide supporting documents. The scholarship offers up to $ 750 which can be used towards tuition fees.
Lisa Johnson, NDUS vice chancellor of academic and student affairs, said the scholarship provides a financial incentive for students who have already achieved double credit in high school.
âWe are grateful for the support of the North Dakota Legislature to provide financial assistance to reward North Dakota students who have taken dual credit education opportunities during their high school careers,â Johnson said. âDouble credit plays an important role in helping the state achieve academic achievement goals and particularly helps students who choose to pursue a college education as part of their college, career, or military preparation choices. “
The scholarship will be available throughout the academic year. The maximum payment will not exceed 50% of the cost of dual credit courses and will be limited to tuition and tuition fees. The scholarship can be used for enrollment in any public, private, tribal, or exclusive institution in the state of North Dakota.

Johnson said about 4,000 students were enrolled in a double credit course this fall. Dual credit courses can contribute to the overall cost of earning a higher education degree after high school.
