Become a Lake Area Technical College 

“Stretch the Million” Partner!

In an effort to ‘stretch’ the available dollars in the Build Dakota Scholarship program, we invite our industry partners to consider this unique opportunity to participate as a “Stretch the Million” partner.

“STM” partners commit to paying half of the expenses of the Build Dakota Scholarship for a student scholar.

  • BDS Full-ride scholarships support tuition, fees, books and other required program expenses in the eligible technical college programs.
  • Both in-state students and out-of-state students are eligible for the scholarships.
  • Recipients of the scholarships will commit to living and working in the state, in their field of study, for three years following graduation.
  • If a scholarship recipient has an industry (Stretch the Million) partner, the three year work commitment is with that business!

Please contact us for more information about how to become an STM partner!
