PIERRE – The South Dakota Retailers Association Scholarship application are now available for students enrolled in post-secondary schooling during the fall of 2020.
The SDRA scholarship program is designed to assist students studying for a career in hospitality, business or trades, whether as an owner, manager, or employee. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be currently enrolled or plan to enroll in a retail-related course of study at a technical school, college, or university in the fall of 2020.
Thanks to contributions from SDRA member businesses, in 2019, the association awarded funds to four students, in amounts ranging from $2,250 to $3,000. The program is named in honor of former SDRA Executive Director Jerry Wheeler, who started the program in 1992. Since then, the Association has awarded 252 scholarships, totaling $181,500.
If you know a hard-working student in South Dakota with big business dreams, South Dakota Retailers want to help them succeed and grow in our state.
