Get the scholarship you deserve

Last year we gave nearly one million dollars in academic, athletic, and other scholarships. Every year, we look to top that number and ensure that we’re helping students make their dreams come true. 

All new students applying to Dakota State University will be eligible for our many scholarship opportunities. Any new high school student meeting certain academic criteria will automatically qualify for a scholarship. Learn more about the qualifications for our Champion or DSU Rising Scholarship.
