Build Dakota Scholarship

Gov. Dennis Daugaard recently announced the Build Dakota Scholarship fund program. It is funded by a donation of $25 million by T. Denny Sanford and matched by Gov. Dennis Daugaard and the state of South Dakota Future Fund.

The scholarship provides a full ride  to students who will commit to working in South Dakota for three years after graduating from a technical program.

The scholarship can be used at South Dakota’s four technical schools.

The scholarships are available for new, incoming students in the 2015-2016 school year. A total of 300 scholarships will be awarded the first year.

The area of study covered by the scholarship are: automotive, building trades/construction, energy technicians, engineering technicians, licensed practical nursing, medical lab technicians, precision manufacturing and welding.

Build Dakota is concentrated on high-need workforce programs and aims to ease the worker shortage in the state.

At Winner High School, the Build Dakota Scholarship information is available on Counselor’s Corner.
