Giving Hearts Day: UND gives away scholarships


GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ)--Giving Hearts day was pumping kindness  through UND’s campus, as 5 random students are getting 5 thousand dollar scholarships.

The University of North Dakota's Alumni Foundation handed out $25-thousand dollars in scholarships to students on Thursday.

One senior applied just 10 minutes before the deadline for the drawing.

He says, now, he won't be burdened with bills -- ahead of getting his master's degree.

"I didn't think I was going to win at all until my phone was ringing in my pocket in class and I was like no way. I was thinking about how am I going to pay for the master's program? How am I gonna pay for my CPA exam and this alleviates all that stress,” said Senior, Jace Dukart.

He has hopes to be an accountant -- where he can one day count other people's money.
