North Dakota Scholarships
The 39th state of the country is North Dakota. It achieved its statehood in 1889. Canada borders the state to the North, so you can be certain of snowy, blowy winters. But, at the very least, you'll have plenty of room to move around as North Dakota is the 3rd least populous state in the Union.
The economy of North Dakota is robust and varied. The leading industry is agriculture. Some of the main crops include corn, soybeans and cereal grains. Other leading industries in the state are petroleum, food processing and computer technology. The state's coal and oil reserves have contributed much to the health of the state economy.
There are over 20 colleges and universities in North Dakota. The largest of these are the University of North Dakota and North Dakota State University. Also offered are several tribal community colleges catering to the Native American community. Students searching for college scholarship opportunities in North Dakota should find a wide range of options.
