About the Scholarship
Franklin Krause is a lifelong farmer and small business owner in Roberts County, South Dakota and Richland County, North Dakota. Following his retirement, he moved to the Black Hills and became a valued Hermosa and Custer County, South Dakota resident. He strongly supports the younger generation in agriculture, church and charitable volunteering.
The Franklin Krause Foundation New Horizons Scholarship honors Franklin’s lifelong agricultural and small business career and philanthropic interests. Few scholarships are available for those non-traditional students that have decided to further their careers after being in the workforce for a while or specifically for skilled trade technical institutes.
This scholarship is available for residents of Roberts and Custer County, South Dakota and Richland County, North Dakota or contiguous counties. Recipients will be chosen by a standing committee representing a resident of the primary counties, educators and agricultural business owners. Scholarship amounts will vary over time but will be announced yearly on franklinkrausefountation.org. Preference will be given to those students pursuing a post-secondary degree in agriculture or business.
