Student Support


This Giving Day, you can make a tremendous difference in the lives of NDSU students by giving toward any or all of the university’s many opportunities for direct student support.


Your gift to the Student Emergency Fund will help students when they need it most by providing emergency financial assistance to students who encounter unforeseen catastrophic events that create financial emergencies. This fund has been extremely helpful during the pandemic for students who may have lost income or needed technology for remote learning.


Your support of the NDSU Food Security Fund will address immediate nutrition needs for students who have food insecurity. Currently, this program allows us to add dining center meals directly to the ID cards of students in need to provide a quick response to need and while protecting the privacy and dignity of the recipient. 


With your support of the Student Opportunity Scholarship Fund, academically talented, yet financially challenged students can realize their full potential.


By supporting the Multicultural Programs Scholarship Fund, you can help students realize their dream of an education at NDSU.  Awarded in varying amounts, this scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate financial need and are active in leadership and service in the multicultural community.


Your support of the International Student Scholarship Fund will make a difference in the lives of international students at NDSU who demonstrate good academic standing and leadership within the campus international student community.


Give the gift of the world by supporting the Study Abroad Scholarship Fund, where student learning is expanded beyond the traditional classroom setting. Study abroad encourages transformative learning opportunities that foster academic development, personal growth, and intercultural competence that are indispensable elements of a quality education in today’s global society.


The NDSU Presidential Scholarship Fund recognizes new first year students who have attained a high academic profile while exhibiting strong leadership characteristics. This scholarship is one of NDSU’s premiere tools to recruit new undergraduate students.
