About the 2017/2018 North Dakota State University ACS Scholarship for International Students
Applications are currently ongoing for the 2017/2018 North Dakota State University ACS Scholarship for International Students and all interested students are hereby informed.
Academic and Cultural Sharing Scholarship is offered to prospective international students who have already begun first-year in a university and who will and desire to share their culture with U.S. students, faculty, staff and members of the community in activities that are both academically and culturally beneficial.
The Academic & Cultural Sharing Scholarship offers international undergraduate students the ability to receive a tuition waiver of 50% of the Non-Resident Base Tuition rate, currently a savings of about $8,500 for the academic year.
This scholarship is available to all undergraduate international students who qualify for admission at North Dakota State University, hold F-1 student status, and continue on a semesterly basis to uphold the necessary academic and cultural sharing requirements.
Given the nature of the scholarship, recipients are expected to share their cultures with U.S. students, faculty, staff and members of the community in activities that are both academically and culturally beneficial.
This will enable people to increase their knowledge of the cultures and countries where the scholarship recipients come from and gain a better sense of the global society.
In turn, the recipients gain a better understanding of themselves and of American culture. Examples of qualified services for reporting hours can be found on this webpage under the Qualified Hours link on the right-side column of the page.

The application will be reviewed as soon as it is received and a decision will be made after you have been regularly admitted to North Dakota State University. 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.
