A new $1 million endowment is providing scholarships to undergraduate students in engineering at the University of North Dakota. The William F. and Inez L. McDonald Endowment provides financial resources for students in chemical, civil, electrical, geological and mechanical engineering, geology, and environmental geoscience. To be eligible for a McDonald Scholarship, students must be in good academic standing in an CEM major, be a new freshman, a new transfer student, or a freshman returning for a second year in a CEM major. Priority consideration will be given to students with financial need, as determined by the FAFSA and the UND financial aid. Applicants not meeting the financial need criteria or those who have not submitted a FAFSA form will be placed in a pool for consideration once all applicants with need have been identified. The value of the scholarships may vary between $250 and $1,250 per semester, and will be available to undergraduate students who have declared engineering, geology, or environmental geoscience as their degree program, are fully enrolled (min. 12 credit hours) and are following an approved curriculum. Initial awards are usually made in May.
The Buckingham Family Endowment was established by Robert P. Buckingham in honor of his brothers and relatives who have graduated from UND, as well as his father and grandfather, E.J. and George W. Buckingham. Initial awards will be made in the spring/summer, with early applications given preference.
