Real DEAL Scholarship

Are you the Real DEAL?

In 2018, Taylor Thompson of North Border Walhalla High School was the Real DEAL when she received $3,500 in scholarship funds from Bank of North Dakota. In addition, 47 other students received $500 scholarships to help them pay for college.

Are you a North Dakota high school senior with a 2.5 GPA or higher who is involved in your school or community and planning to attend a ND college? You may be the next Real DEAL and need to let us know by applying!

Forty-eight high school seniors will be selected to each receive a $500 scholarship. Eight recipients are drawn each month, October – March. Those 48 recipients will be given an opportunity to compete for an additional $3,000 by completing another round of questions in April 2019.

This scholarship is unique, because the earlier you enter – the more likely you are to win. You only need to enter one time. And, even better, if you are one of the first 1,000 entries, you’ll receive a popular BND T-shirt. You’ll appreciate the quick application process, so get started right away.

Apply now!

Applications are being accepted through February 28, 2019. However, completing your entry early ensures you have more opportunities to receive a scholarship during the monthly drawing.  

When scholarships, grants, savings and federal student loans don’t meet the entire cost of college, BND has a student loan. Learn more.
