Diploma (2 semesters programs). Sponsorship before April 15, 2021 guarantees the student a Build

• Western Dakota Tech acknowledges that this is not a binding agreement between the company and
Western Dakota Tech, but merely an intent to participate depending upon applicants. Western Dakota
Tech also states that a student is not guaranteed a Build Dakota Scholarship through the Have Your Pick
program without an Employment Agreement signed between the student and company by June 30, 2021.
• If awarded a Build Dakota Scholarship, the student must be enrolled full-time in the program that the
scholarship was awarded, maintain a 2.5 GPA, and upon graduation work in the field of study for 3 years.
• We recommend the Employment Agreement between the company and the student clearly define what is
a breach of contract, and the student’s responsibility for paying back the funds to the company if there is a
breach of contract.
