The NDSCS Alumni/Foundation is committed to the encouragement and support of academic excellence at NDSCS. As a 501(c)3 organization the Foundation’s mission is to “Support and assist those activities that develop and strengthen the North Dakota State College of Science.” The NDSCS Alumni Association has been active on campus since 1903 and the NDSCS Foundation was established in 1986. Scholarships have been a core part of students attending NDSCS for many years. The NDSCS Foundation Scholarship Program was created for the purpose of attracting and retaining students of outstanding ability. This is possible due to the generous support from alumni, community and business friends, staff and faculty. There are many different types of scholarships available from the NDSCS Foundation. The NDSCS Foundation provides academic, athletic, performing arts, technology and service, science and business, and general scholarships. As a student receiving these scholarships, we invite you to learn more about the person, business or families that gave so generously to help you with your financial load. This booklet gives you a very brief overview of the kind of generosity that has taken place over the years. As a Donor, thank you for your contributions and the selfless act you and your loved ones have shown by contributing to an Endowment or an annual scholarship. Student need for financial assistance has grown over the years. Your commitment and support does not go unnoticed. The NDSCS Foundation is proud of the number of academically and technically talented students who enter the College each year. We are proud to say that our scholarship process allows for over half of all students that apply to obtain some sort of scholarship annually. Kim Nelson – Executive Foundation Director
