My PLAN for the Future Scholarship

About this opportunity

In December 2017, Rapid City, South Dakota middle school students were offered The My PLAN for the Future Scholarship opportunity. Sponsored by the nonprofit National American University Foundation and Andy Bartling of Modern Woodmen of America in Rapid City, the My PLAN Scholarship opportunity challenged Rapid City middle school student to think about their future goals and their plan for achieving those goals. 

In response to this opportunity, more than 200 applications were received. Given that the goal of the My PLAN for the Future Scholarship was to get kids thinking about their plans to achieve their future goals, the Foundation is delighted that 200 kids in the Rapid City community took on the challenge of thinking intentionally about their future selves.
