The checks will be sent directly to the Financial Aid Office at the institution you plan to attend. Should your enrollment change, you must notify SRT immediately to prevent jeopardizing the scholarship. 
  • Scholarships will be awarded without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. This institution is an equal opportunity employer and provider. 

Donations & Sponsorships

SRT contributes to community programs throughout the SRT area.  Priority is given to programs which encourage community involvement, support vital needs, and promote utilization of technology.

Unfortunately, SRT receives more requests than we are able to accommodate and we are generally unable to support donations outside of our service area, to individuals, political or religious activities, or trips and travel.
Community Events

We know that local events bring communities together while helping them thrive. Because of this, SRT loves participating in various community activities year-round. Let us know if we can be part of something special in your town!

proud to support

Community Development

SRT is proud to support local economic development. We encourage local businesses and community organizations to apply for the Rural Economic Development Loan & Grant program. Loans are available for organizations bringing economic development value to the area. Notably, these loans start at $5,000. The project must bring economic development to the area. However, SRT cannot be a lender of last resort. The program is not meant to compete with local banking institutions. Instead, it is meant as a supplement to other financing options. Business plans are required and this pre-application is available for interested parties. For more information, contact Cassidy Hjelmstad at 701-838-9719.
