Philanthropy in action
A new scholarship program helps make the dream of higher education a greater possibility for first-generation students in the College of Business

Beginning in fall 2021, all incoming first-generation students enrolled in the College of Business at North Dakota State University will be awarded a one-time scholarship thanks to a new scholarship program funded through philanthropy. The program is supported by the Ronald and Kaye Olson Deanship fund and the Sheila and Robert Challey Institute for Global Innovation and Growth.

"The Olson and Challey families are wonderful," Scott Beaulier, the Ronald and Kaye Olson Dean of the College of Business, said. "We're leveraging their philanthropy for maximal student impact."
