SME Student Scholarships Programs

Sales and Marketing Executives, Inc. of Sioux Falls® has contributed over $250,000 in student scholarships and youth programs through our fundraising programs.

Each year SME Sioux Falls awards scholarships to college students in institutions of higher learning in South Dakota.  Students are encouraged to apply for the awards by their instructors and through media promotions. The minimum amount given away yearly is $5,500 through a set policy governed by the Board of Directors.  The individual scholarship amounts vary from $1,000 to $3,000 per student winner.  Monies for these scholarships are raised through a fundraising effort of raffles and donations.  Deadlines for applications are due March 1.  The Scholarship competition is held mid-April with the scholarships awarded the same day during the SME membership luncheon meeting.  Scholarship monies are paid to the students the following fall after enrollment.
