Alumni Scholarship Opportunities

eNDLeSs Leadership Scholarship

In the fall of 2011, the NDLS Alumni Officer Team was presented with an opportunity to give back, in the form of a scholarship, to the leaders who have continually made the North Dakota Leadership Seminar the great experience that it is today. Over the course of the next two years, Joshua Knutson worked to create a functioning application and finalized the initial version of what is today the “eNDLeSs Leadership Scholarship,” with the first scholarships being awarded at the 2013 Leadership Seminar.

In order to qualify for this scholarship, certain criteria must be met by the applicants. These criteria include having been part of the North Dakota Leadership Seminar as a Student Leader, attaining a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and attaining an ACT score of at least 21. The application takes into account the applicant’s involvement in both high school and NDLS activities, as well as their volunteer efforts as outlined in their answers to a series of essay questions.

The eNDLeSs Leadership Scholarship is an evolving program that is constantly being evaluated and improved by members of the Alumni Officer Team; however, the initial vision of the program remains constant, to help recipients continue leading beyond high school and into college. The officer team hopes that the financial aid given to the recipients eases the financial burden of attending college, while allowing them to hone the skills and values taught at NDLS even further into their futures.

More Information about the application process will be made available in April 2018.
