Freshman Scholarships

Scholarship Description
In order to be considered for incoming freshman scholarships at the School of Mines, prospective students must have been accepted for admission no later than the first business day in February prior to the year they plan to attend. Regardless of which application you submit, all incoming freshman accepted for admission will be competitively evaluated for incoming freshman scholarships. The SDSM&T Scholarship Committee has developed a formula that evaluates each student's ACT Composite, ACT Math and high school Cumulative Grade Point Average and ranks each student on an Order of Merit List (OML) from the highest to lowest score. A student's relative position on the OML will determine who will be offered four-year Surbeck Scholarships ($7,000 a year), four-year Presidential Scholarships ($3,000 a year), four year Distinctive Scholarships (ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 a year) and two-year Tech Challenge Scholarships (ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 a year). Some of our scholarship donors have set up scholarships with very specific eligibility criteria. These one-year, non-renewable awards range from $100 to $2900.
