Students earn scholarships from USD School of Business Students at The University of South Dakota received scholarships at an event recently held on campus in Vermillion. Alumni and supporters of the School of Business generously provide the awards and scholarships.
"Except for graduation day, our faculty and students enjoy 'scholarship day' more than any other day of the year," said Michael Keller, dean of the School of Business. "On this day we present more than 200 scholarships worth in excess of $200,000 to our most deserving students. The recognition and financial help this brings can be seen on the faces of the recipients. The pride in our students and the alums that make the scholarships possible can be seen on the faces of the faculty. It is a great day that celebrates the fact that the Business School alums do in fact take care of the deserving students who are the future of our state."
