Dakota Indian Foundation
209 N Main Street P.O. Box 340 Chamberlain, SD

Dakota Indian Foundation was founded in 1971 by the late John Frank Lindley, former State Representative and Lieutenant Governor of the State of South Dakota. He conceived the Foundation from his concern for the plight of South Dakota’s tribes.

At the heart of Dakota Indian Foundation is a belief that education is essential to making life better for future generations. Each semester, approximately 100 students receive a scholarship to support their collegiate studies. Students must be enrolled in a South Dakota tribe, have attended a college or university on a full-time basis, and carry a minimum grade point average.
