The Engebretson Scholarship Foundation was founded in 2006 by the family of the late David J. Engebretson. David J. Engebretson, a native of South Dakota, was a prominent business man who always held children close at heart. Mr. Engebretson had a dream, a dream to "Always Give Back." He supported many organizations and hospitals through donations, always focusing on the needs of a child. The Engebretson Foundation is based on this dream and founded to carry on the dream.
