Students Bound For Tech Earn PIMCO Scholarships
The following students who are headed for South Dakota Tech have received PIMCO scholarships. The four-year, renewable scholarships are for $2,000 per year. PIMCO awarded 70 such scholarships to South Dakota students.

Qualifying applicants needed to be on track to complete the Regent Scholar curriculum at the time of application. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in their college studies to retain eligibility
The PIMCO South Dakota Scholarship Program is funded by PIMCO Advisors Distributors LLC in connection with its management of South Dakota's Higher Education Savings Plan, called CollegeAccess 529. Scholarship applicants were not required to be invested in the plan.
