Annual Scholarships

Create an annual scholarship 

Every dollar counts. At Dakota State, you can create an annual scholarship starting at $1,000. By starting an annual scholarship, you will be helping make college more affordable for a student.

An annual scholarship can be named by the donor, bearing their name or an honoree’s name. Donors also have the option to give to an annual scholarship already created or donate to the champion annual scholarships.

Dakota State Champion Annual Scholarships began in 2003 and are awarded to students based on ACT scores. There are four levels – DSU Presidential Champion, DSU Elite Champion, DSU Merit Champion, and DSU Achievement Champion. Through Champion Annual Scholarships $600,000-$700,000 is awarded to students annually.

Annual scholarships help DSU stay competitive recruiting and retaining students.
