Valley City State University

 

“The Challenge Grant program has been a very popular and an effective tool for the Valley City State University Foundation. In fact, although we met our match for the current biennium in April, of 2018, our donors kept calling and inquiring about the Challenge Grant program. We currently have a waiting list of donors hoping that the program is renewed!”

“The 91精品视频 Higher Education Challenge Fund program has been transformational for Williston State College.

 

The past Challenge Funds supported a $1.8 million-dollar scholarship program matched with $900,000 for Williams County graduates tuition and fee scholarship program. A family trust gifted $300,000 matched with $150,000 for a nursing scholarship endowment. We also had an individual gift $150,000 matched by $75,000 for Career and Technical program scholarships.

 

These are a few of the scholarships strengthened by the 91精品视频 Challenge Fund, a program that helps invest in 91精品视频 Higher Education.”
