Do you live in North Dakota? Are you attending Valley City State University? If you answered “yes” to those two questions, you may qualify for a Dacotah Bank Scholarship. This scholarship is given to two students each year by the Dacotah Bank. Each award is $500. The bank gives preference to students from Barnes County who are pursuing a major in business. Each year, one female student and one male student receive the award. The bank also tries to give out one award to a new student each year, and one award to an upperclassman.
Additionally, students who live in South Dakota and are planning to attend a post-secondary college in that state have the opportunity to win $1,000 from Dacotah Bank. Over the course of 2014, the company will be awarding a total of $20,000 in scholarships to students in both states. This includes $1,000 scholarships as well as local $500 scholarships like the one for Barnes County.
To apply, you must have a relationship with Dacotah Bank, Dacotah Insurance, Dacotah Trust, or Investment Center of America. If you do not have a direct relationship, you are still eligible if you have an immediate family member who does. You must postmark your application by March 5 in order to be considered for any Dacotah award.
