Each year, SCORE Chapter 157 provides money for scholarships to Western Dakota Technical Institute and to regional colleges. It is intended that these scholarships should be awarded to students whose career objectives are to ultimately become entrepreneurs and businessmen and women. Students interested in these scholarships should apply to the school they wish to attend. In their letter of application, they should include a short statement and of the long-term employment and/or business goals they currently envision. If they are awarded a scholarship that does not in any way obligate them to exactly follow those goals in the future. The only purpose of this requirement is to encourage the applicant to begin thinking about a business career.
