WolfPACT Scholarship

The largest scholarship in South Dakota. Guaranteed.

It’s called the WolfPACT Scholarship. No ifs, ands, or buts, this is one of the most generous, far-reaching, four-year scholarships in the region. And it’s based purely on ACT (or SAT) scores. The higher the score, the higher the amount of the scholarship. Students receive up to $12,000 over four years for scores of 30 or higher, $11,000 for scores of 28 or 29, $7,000 for scores of 24 to 27 and $5,000 for scores of 21 to 23. See below for required SAT scores (based on total scores from the redesigned SAT).

To apply, send a completed admission application, application fee, high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores. The WolfPACT is for new freshmen only.
