Our scholarship program and the generosity of donors make scholarships available for new and current students.
Western Dakota Technical College Scholarships
Western Dakota Technical College utilizes its intra-campus system portal to make it easier for students to apply for scholarships. Keep in mind, there are many scholarships available for a wide variety of students. You don’t always need a high GPA or outstanding test scores! The WDT Foundation Scholarship application is universal. You just complete it once per scholarship application cycle and it automatically applies it to every scholarship in our system that you are eligible for! [The Build Dakota Scholarship does require a separate application. More info and link below.]
For Fall scholarships, the application window is between January 1 and March 31 of every year. For Spring scholarships, the application window is between August 1 and October 31 of every year. To view and apply for WDT Foundation Scholarships, click the link below.
