Coyote Legacy Scholarship Program

The goal of the Coyote Legacy Scholarship is to honor families who have made a multi-generational commitment to USD. It’s about supporting students, families, fellow Coyotes and giving back to our alumni. 

I'm Torrey Sundall. I am a USD alum (twice), a father to a legacy student and an avid supporter of the university. The Coyote Legacy Scholarship Program is a passion of mine, and the impact it can make on our Coyote family is profound. For many incoming freshmen, the journey to becoming a Coyote began long before they became a student. It began with a parent or grandparent that attended USD and instilled in them a love and appreciation for their collegiate experience. University of South Dakota traditions run deep and seeing the importance of the USD traditions carried on within families is an honor.

The USD Alumni Association debuted the Coyote Legacy Scholarship Program in the fall of 2018 to recognize and honor families who have made multi-generational commitments to USD. The program provides a limited number of $1,000 scholarships to be awarded to in-state, incoming freshmen students, whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) also attended USD. 

The Coyote Legacy Scholarship Program aims to inspire a life-long connection to our beloved university. Join me in supporting students as they embark on their own Coyote journey's and decide what kind of legacies they wish to leave behind.
