As a partner to South Dakota’s small businesses, First District Development Company invests in economic development activities other than direct lending. This year FDDC offered five – $1,000 scholarships to students pursuing a post-secondary degree in a business/finance related field. Student applicants were evaluated based on their academic achievements, character references, a written essay, and involvement in community, school, extra-curricular, religious, volunteer, and special interest activities.
