Students seeking to establish their initial eligibility in the South Dakota Opportunity Scholarship program must complete the application at the link below.
The scholarship application website uses the same sign on as the 6 public universities (BOR Institutions) - therefore students who have taken Dual Credit coursework or those that have applied to a BOR Institution and have a student ID and password, will be able to log into the site using the same log in information used to access course materials. Other students will be able to create an account and log in to apply.
Complete application packages are due to institutional representatives by no later than
for those seeking initial enrollment during the Fall term, and no later than
January 15th for those seeking initial enrollment during the Spring term. However, it is recommended that the initial scholarship application and transcript be submitted by June 1st when establishing eligibility for the Fall term and November 1st for the Spring term so that the financial aid office can begin to work with eligible students to package a scholarship award in a more timely manner.
