Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota University System is helping STEM graduates pay off their debt. Having started this program in 2002, NDUS is offering loan forgiveness to college grads who've been working in science, technology, engineering or math careers for 12 months after graduation.

Since North Dakota is becoming one of the leading states in energy, NDUS says they're working to retain the best by enticing them to stay. Applicants can receive up to $6,000 over four years. Last year, more than 800 students received financial assistance.

"Individuals don't have to have graduated from a North Dakota college. But it's retaining that talent and getting the talent to come in to North Dakota which is key," says NDUS's director of financial aid Brenda Zastoupil.

North Dakota University System will be accepting applications starting May 1. Awards are given out on a first come first serve bases. Applications will be available online at http://www.ndus.nodak.edu/students/paying-for-college/grants-scholarships/
