Perhaps the greatest effort we can put forth is to help make our profession better. To that end, in 2011, SDRSP began offering a $1000 scholarship available to any South Dakota K-12 teacher with 5 years experience. The idea was so popular (and economically supported by our members) that we now offer two scholarships a year! To qualify for this scholarship, the teacher must be working on an advanced degree or national certification. Please fill out the application and save it as a WORD or pdf document. E-mail the application and the two required essays as attachments to the address on the application form. Deadline for application: April 15th. Please be sure the application is electronically submitted by that date!
