The Williston State College Foundation has introduced a new scholarship that will help students achieve--even if graduation is not the primary goal.
The Teton Promise scholarship, which will be awarded to 100 area students, will pay half a student's tuition over the course of the next two years.
The Foundation has committed about $320,000 has been committed to the Teton Promise scholarship.
Students graduating with the class of 2014 with a 2.0 or higher will qualify for the scholarship.
The scholarship is available for the student each consecutive semester so that the half-tuition may also be applied to a certificate program over 15 credit hours.
(Kayla McKeil, Williston State College Marketing Director) "If they've met their goals, we've been successful, they've been successful. But we do know that many students come in hoping to get two years, graduate and go on to the work force or go on to another institution. So if they can do that and complete, we've done our job."
