Need-based financial aid program in the works for South Dakota

Monday, February 18, 2019

South Dakota is one of the only states that doesn’t offer a need-based financial aid program.

The South Dakota Board of Regents has been working on a program, Dakota’s Promise, to change that.

Dakota’s Promise is a five phase, state-funded aid program that could support 6,000 students once fully implemented. SDBOR has sent a recommendation to Gov. Dennis Daugaard to include the plan in the fiscal budget.

Josh Sorbe, a Student Government Association senator, sponsored a recommendation in support of the plan. It was passed unanimously by SGA.
