"2019 ABE Banquet of Excellence"
2019 Banquet of Excellence

Rewarding academic excellence and personal leadership is a tradition in our department. Thanks to our donors' generous support, the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department expects to award $30,000 in scholarships in the coming school year. Freshman scholarships for new students are accepted throughout the year. In January, the scholarship committee begins awarding scholarships to incoming students for the following fall semester. 

The typical Departmental scholarship size is between $500 and $1,000. The University also has a substantial scholarship program, which students are encouraged to apply for. It is possible to receive a scholarship from both the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering and South Dakota State University. Scholarships are also available for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
