Rooster Booster Scholarship Fund


Our passion for the mission of Dordt University and our love of pheasant hunting spurred on a partnership that has raised more than $1 million and supported hundreds of student scholarships. In 2006, Dordt University and Dakota Christian School (Corsica, South Dakota) took a small group of hunters on a three-day hunt. This group from across the county have become close friends and are strong supporters of Dordt University and the Rooster Booster Scholarship.


Rooster Boosters have:

1. Raised more than $1.5 million in scholarships since 2006.

2. Awarded more than 20 needs-based scholarships every year (that's approximately 250 scholarships!) at $2,000 per student recipient.


1. To raise the remaining $500,000 of the $2 million goal for the endowed portion of the scholarship by 2020.

2. To have at least 40 more scholarship recipients by 2020.


Every gift up to $100,000 will be matched. Your gift will double! Make a gift now.
