Student Opportunities

Each year we recognize students for their achievements by offering three $1,000 Verendrye scholarships, and by funding Dollars for Scholars scholarships in the communities we serve. We also send one lucky high school sophomore of junior an all-expenses-paid trip of a lifetime to Washington, D.C. as part of the Youth Tour  program.

The deadline to submit an essay to the Youth Tour contest is normally the end of January and the deadline for Verendrye Scholarships is February 15.
