Clark County Riders Inc:
CCR Scholarship 2020 Application
A non profit organization based in Clark, South Dakota. Last year we started a scholarship for students attending any one of South Dakota’s Vocational Schools. The club understands that vocational jobs are in high demand, and not every student wants to attend a four-year college. We would like to support young people in pursuit of these careers. The original scholarship was offered only in Clark County, as that is the home of our organization. This year, we have decided to open it up to more students in our great state. CCR has members throughout South Dakota and wanted to support the communities they live and work in; therefore, we are now opening the scholarship to students in those communities as well.
