Hoeven Announces $20 Million in Funding for NDSU

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $20,000,000 to North Dakota State University (NDSU). These funds are made available through NSF’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), which Hoeven has worked to fund through annual appropriations bills. The grant will aid research and educational activities related to the development of cancer therapies, while also supporting industry partnerships to grow North Dakota’s bioscience and technology sectors. 

“The studies conducted by our universities provide opportunities to benefit our state and nation in a variety of ways, including helping to bring new treatments and therapies to market,” said Hoeven. “Today’s grant builds on our long efforts to make North Dakota a hub of technology entrepreneurship and further advance NDSU’s role as an engine of economic growth.”
