BISMARCK, N.D. (GPN) – North Dakota university officials say a proposed $30 million state grant fund would help them raise private money for projects. The proposal got a hearing Wednesday in the House Education Committee. It was part of Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s budget proposal to the Legislature. It would provide up to $10 million for North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota. North Dakota’s remaining nine public colleges could get another $1 million each. The bill says the colleges have to raise at least $2 to get $1 of state support. The money could be used for a variety of things – from buildings to raising salaries for top-notch professors. Valley City State University President Steve Shirley says state support for private fundraising will help North Dakota’s colleges get donations from sources that wouldn’t normally contribute. Shirley says it will help schools build new, long-term relationships with donors.
