University hopefuls must apply by April 1
The Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation and the University of South Dakota have offered the unique program since 2010. New college students complete their first semester, earning up to 14 transferable credits.
The application deadline is April 1 for this year’s 32 student openings.
Students seeking admission must be age 17 to 21, have a high school diploma or general education degree and a cumulative grade-point average or equivalent of 2.00.
All students meeting admission standards are welcome to apply, however, preference is given to members of federally-recognized American Indian tribes.
Accepted students receive a scholarship covering the costs of tuition and class materials. In addition, Crazy Horse Memorial subsidizes the cost of lodging and meals, holding a student’s overall costs at $800.
However, thanks to paid working internships at the Memorial’s visitor complex, it is possible for students to pay for their program expenses and leave with money for their future schooling.
