SOUTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY-SDSU JACKRABBIT GUARANTEE SCHOLARSHIP 2017
The Jackrabbit Guarantee is a commitment by SDSU to award a minimum of $1,000 in academic scholarship aid per year to eligible students.The scholarship funds come from a variety of sources – departments, colleges and the university – and will be used to meet the university’s commitment. For example, a student may receive the Butler Scholarship for $750 from an academic department. An additional $250 from another source would be awarded to the student to meet the $1,000 total.
A Jackrabbit Guarantee scholarship will be awarded to any new, incoming freshman who has earned an ACT score of 24 or higher (1090 SAT) and who attends the main SDSU campus in Brookings.
Students who attend the University Center in Sioux Falls or Rapid City or any other off-campus sites are not eligible to receive the scholarship.
