Making Big Dreams Happen

We hope you're dreaming big and we hope those dreams include great things for Montana. For the 2019-2020 academic year, we awarded nearly $500,000 to deserving Montana students thanks to the generous scholarship funds established by our donors.

Qualifications vary widely resulting in scholarship eligibility for a diverse range of students. For most scholarships, students can begin applying online January 1, with the closing date for applications being March 20. Scholarship awards generally range between $500 and $5,000, some of which are renewable for multiple years. 

Check back on January 1, 2021 for the upcoming 2021 scholarship cycle. If you have questions about your award from 2020, email Jenny Stark at

Renewable Scholarships for Returning Students

Most multi-year scholarships require a renewal application. Renewal applications are available January 1.
