  • Dakota College Received National Science Foundation Grant: Dakota College at Bottineau

    DCB worked closely with Mentor Connect which was found to be essential in the process. They helped Dr. Burbidge and Professor Angie Bartholomay and grant writer Cathy Jelsing to narrow the focus of the overall project. This allowed for the development of a manageable timeline to reach their goals.

  • “We are really grateful to Mentor-Connect for the expert help in guiding us through the development of our project proposal and helping us to gain entry into the national ATE community,” said Driver.
