$6,500 4-Year South Dakota Opportunity College Education Scholarship

There are students with exceptionally brilliant minds and has accomplished great academic lengths enhancing their knowledge or simply to make their parents proud. Truth to be told, we may be failing these geniuses as not all of them are able to get a college education. The money crisis we have today is just getting worse by the hour as fees to get a bachelor degree are soaring high. The fact is also the same even for minor degree programs. However, with a little bit of research and requirement preparation we may be able to help our kids realize their bachelor degree.

The Augustana University has plenty of scholarships to offer and one of these generous scholarships is the South Dakota Opportunity Scholarship. The university assists each student to complete their bachelor degree or finish any of their available degree programs. They offer over a hundred of minor or major field of studies to accommodate students with different field of interests. The South Dakota Opportunity Scholarship started in 2004. It was established by the South Dakota Legislature which aims to provide college education financial assistance to qualified high school graduates. The scholarship is granting an amount of $6,500 in the duration of 4 years of college education.

Students are asked to download and complete the free Application for Admission and Scholarship form to start with their application. The eligibilities for the scholarship requires the student to have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, ACT composite score of 24 or higher, and have met the SDOS curriculum requirements. The complete application and required documents should be submitted before the final due date of September 1 for fall classes or by January 15 for the spring classes. Although if the students can start earlier with their requirements, it is recommended to submit them before June 1.

The South Dakota Opportunity Scholarship application form is available from the high school counselor. The signature of the student’s High School Authorized Representative is also needed on the form. The school officials also must certify the student’s scores by including them on the official high school transcript or attaching a copy of the student’s ACT or SAT Score Report to the application form. The initial eligibility decisions will be made the campus coordinator before recommending the application to the Board of Regents office for the final consideration.
