Scholarship Overview

This scholarship provides an award for the first year of higher education at an accredited college, university, or vocational or technical school for students from the Sioux Falls area who have a financial need, and who are not normally eligible for such awards because they developed a motivation late in life or after leaving high school. Applicants who did not receive a traditional high school diploma, who entered the work force after graduation, or who were not the top students in previous academic work but who demonstrate personal growth and motivation through an improving academic record, strong work ethic, or some other factor will be given priority for this scholarship. Applicants might have a history of at-risk behavior and a growing commitment to lead a responsible, productive life and have a cumulative grade point average of no higher than a B- (2.7 GPA) or a GED regardless of grades received. There is no GPA requirement for applicants graduating from an alternative school or those who have earned a GED.
