Financial aid garners additional $2,500 in scholarships
The MSU Office of Financial Aid was awarded $2,500 for scholarships for MSU students by Student Loans of North Dakota on May 18. In June of 2006, SLND invited all universities to attend a student loan default prevention symposium. At the symposium, SLND challenged all attending schools to develop and implement a default prevention program at their institution and to then submit a copy of their plan to SLND for competition. The Minot State action plan, prepared by Laurie Weber, won the top honor and $2,500 prize. SLND is administered by Bank of North Dakota and offers a variety of loan programs to help students and parents finance a college education.
