Scholarship Opportunities

Pre-Nursing Student Opportunities

Pre-Nursing students can apply for one of the many academic scholarships that South Dakota State University administers. Awards are based on academic achievement, activities participation and leadership. There are options for students who plan to transfer to SDSU from another post-secondary institution, as well as first time freshman. Apply or learn more about your options.

The Jackrabbit Guarantee program awards a minimum of $1,000 per year for up to four years to any eligible first-time student who earns an ACT score of 24 or higher on the ACT. Students must also attend the main campus in Brookings and meet minimum continuing eligibility requirements. Each year students who qualify for the Jackrabbit Guarantee must submit a new scholarship application on MyState.
