The NDSGC provides funding for North Dakota students to complete research fellowships at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants must be citizens of the United States who are, or will be, enrolled at a tribal college or public two year or four year institution of higher education in North Dakota. Students’ degree programs should be in the areas of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). The number of fellowships available each semester will vary depending on the current budget situation.
Fellowships at the master’s level are given at the amount of $4,500 a semester.
Fellowships at the doctorate level are given at the amount of $6,000 a semester.
Students may receive fellowships for no more than two semesters. Primary selection criteria are:
- Academic excellence (a minimum grade point of 3.00 is required)
- Relevance of the student’s discipline and interests to STEM fields
- Preference will be given to those students not receiving graduate research assistantship (GRA) or graduate teaching assistantship (GTA) funding. Partial fellowships may be rewarded to those students receiving a 1/4th time GRA or GTA appointment.

All awardees will be required to submit a 1-2 page summary of their research to the NDSGC at the end of the semester during which they conducted their research. Fellowship recipients may also be asked to present their research at Space Grant regional, national, or NDSGC annual meetings.
