Recognizing that a transformative education calls us to learn across difference, Concordia has established several priorities to affirm diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives as a condition of institutional excellence, leading all who study and work here to honor difference with respectful understanding and to practice courageous citizenship for the common good. 


Diversity Scholarship

Concordia’s Diversity Scholarship is an annual $1,000 award available to admitted first-year or transfer underrepresented students with financial need. This scholarship can be stacked on top of Excellence and BREW scholarships.

"Because I love it here so much, I want to help Concordia reach its full potential to support students of color more. I am one of the founding members of the Latinx Organization of Achievement, which has created a safe place for me a Latina student on campus."
Sammy Arocho '23

Community Access Scholarship

The Community Access Scholarship is open to first-generation college-bound students from ethnically and socioeconomically diverse backgrounds who live in Fargo-Moorhead or the surrounding area and have a desire to achieve a four-year degree.
