Free $$$! This scholarship could have your name on it.
Qualify for $5,000 by enrolling in a Critical Needs Workforce program.
Up to half of your two-year program can be covered by this scholarship. If you qualify for other financial aid such as grants and scholarships, you will pay even less for a high-demand education!
The Critical Needs Workforce Scholarship is offered to train workers to fill skilled positions in South Dakota industries. You can be awarded up to $5,000 if you choose a two-year program and up to $2,500 for a one-year program. So, what’s the catch? Keep your grades up (minimum 2.5 GPA) while enrolled in the program. Agree to spend three years working in South Dakota for an industry in need of your skills after you graduate (or you’ll pay the scholarship back).
The unexpected rapid recovery of manufacturing in South Dakota and the United States at large is great news for the long term health of our economy and our place in the world. To lose the momentum bringing back manufacturing to this country because of a shortage of skilled workers—especially when there are so many without jobs and without hard skills—would be a squandering of opportunity that may never come your way again.
