Dakotas Promise

University of South Dakota President Sheila Gestring said school officials are putting greater emphasis on making enrollment more affordable for students through a new open textbook fellowship program that will allow 2,000 graduate and undergraduate students to use free or low-cost textbooks. She also said the South Dakota Board of Regents will attempt again to convince the South Dakota Legislature to set aside funds to establish a Dakotas Promise scholarship for students who can’t afford to further their legislation. South Dakota, she noted, is the only state in the country without a needs-based scholarship program.
