Academic and Cultural Sharing Scholarship at North Dakota State University in USA
- Partially Funded
- NaN undefined NaN
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 this page.
More details about the initial application for this scholarship award are available on the International Admissions Scholarships 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.
