At this time the focus for science education grants is with the South Dakota State University Electrical Engineering Department.

2015Money was granted to South Dakota State University for Electrical Engineering Department scholarships in general.


The Blackman-Helseth Scholarship in Electrical Engineering was established and funded for an upper-level electrical engineering student to be awarded beginning this school year.  It is the intent that this scholarship will awarded annually for the foreseeable future.


Funding was again provided for the Blackman-Helseth Scholarship in Electrical Engineering. This funding was matched by a private donation to provide for an extra scholarship award.
