Dr. James Hess, professor of psychology and chair of the School of
Behavioral Sciences at Black Hills State University, pledged a $1
million gift to BHSU to establish the School of Behavioral Sciences Make a
Difference Initiative. In exchange for scholarship funds, students will be
challenged to plan and implement sustainable community projects designed to
make a difference in the lives of others.
Two $3,500 scholarships will be awarded in 2019. In addition to the
scholarship, each recipient will receive up to $2,500 for student projects.
An application and project proposal is due by March 15, 2019. Send the
