Bakken U scholarship application now open

Bakken U scholarship application now open

Applications are now open for more than $25,000 in scholarships that have been announced under the North Dakota University System’s BakkenU initiative.

Now entering its third year, the NDUS Foundation has awarded $15,000 in BakkenU scholarships while the five BakkenU institutions have made several additional awards.
Candidates for the scholarship include current or former workers for energy or energy-related companies, as well as their spouses.

Chancellor Mark Hagerott said the initiative had already proven successful in getting people with backgrounds related to the Bakken back to school.

“Our five westernmost schools have taken this initiative and really made it successful,” Hagerott said. “In doing so, they have been able to reach additional students who may not have had the opportunity to expand their educations with us.”

For the 2017-2018 academic year, the North Dakota Petroleum Council will again partner with the NDUS to offer two $2,500 scholarships. Additionally, Dickinson State University will offer one 4-year scholarship with a total value of more than $9,000. Minot State University will offer three $1,000 scholarships, Bismarck State College Foundation is offering three $1,000 scholarships, and Williston State College will offer five $1,000 scholarships.

For more information, go to BakkenU.NDUS.edu. Applications are due by June 30, 2017.
