Scholarship Opportunities

Social Entrepreneurship Scholars

Every year up to 10 NDSU students are chosen to become The Center for Entrepreneurship and Family Business’ Social Entrepreneurship Scholars. These scholars spend a semester working on a social challenge. The program provides them with the opportunity to learn systems-thinking, to research a social problem, to network with community leaders, and to earn a $1000 scholarship.

CONGRATULATIONS to our 2022 Social Entrepreneurship Scholarship Recipients!
