History

The NDSU Research Foundation was established May 30, 1989.  The Foundation was incorporated in North Dakota as a scientific and educational organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code to make interactions with business and industry possible and to expand NDSU's ability to commercialize its research discoveries for and with domestic and international for-profit business organizations. The Foundation's licensing income is used to support and expand research and educational activities at NDSU.
