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.
