Career Discovery

Presentations and Career-focused Discussions

Bank of North Dakota will be hosting presentations and career-focused discussions for students and parents.

Students and parents are encouraged to register and attend Career Discovery presentations. There is a wide variety of topics including how to research careers, financial aid and financial award programs, where to find and apply for scholarships, in-demand ND careers, how to find the best college fit, choose a major and what to expect the first year on campus, among many other topics. Virtual presentations are live and recorded. 

Presentations will focus on the following:

  • Academic, Career & Technical Education and North Dakota Scholarships: These scholarships are worth $1500 per year and can be renewed. Students who are awarded the scholarship can use the scholarship at qualifying 2-year and 4-year schools in the state of North Dakota. During this session, we will specifically focus on the grade point average, testing requirements and high school courses that need to be completed to qualify for the scholarship
  • Financial Literacy: This session will cover an overview of Money Management. The hands-on session teaches students budgeting, wants and needs, saving and making solid money choices.
  • Life after High School: This session is targeted towards parents. Discussion on resources for students, meal plans, ND Dollar For Scholars throughout college, money management and career choices.
  • Career Planning: What career interests you? Is there a job waiting for you once you have trained for it? Is the training worth it in the end? What are the in-demand careers in North Dakota? Get help on planning your best route to the career, education and training that will provide the biggest “bank for your buck.”
