Mayville State University, Mayville, N.D., is offering a scholarship opportunity that will help non-traditional students achieve their goals. The Nelson Family Endowed Scholarship is especially geared toward helping individuals who may be changing their paths in life or those who are pursuing changes in careers. A special emphasis of the scholarship is to promote volunteerism, leadership, development, and out-of-classroom experiences for the recipients.

Nelson Family Endowed Scholarship awardees will be non-traditional aged students, 25 years of age and older. The recipients must be full time, degree seeking students who are pursuing courses in residence at the Mayville State campus. Eligible students must demonstrate a need for funds as evidenced by information submitted through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The scholarship may be awarded to those in pursuit of associate’s or bachelor’s degrees. Preference will be given to females, but both males and females will be considered. The scholarship is renewable to students who maintain a 2.0 grade point average or greater. With each term, there is an expectation of improvement.
