Scholarship Listing 2018-2019

Scholarship List         Updated May 30, 2018

All colleges offer numerous scholarships, but I suggest you look at the individual college website. Some Montana colleges award their scholarships based on the student's application to attend, but others require the student apply for each scholarship.

Please note that deadlines change year-to-year. The deadlines listed below should give students enough time to meet any deadline changes, but carefully check scholarship websites for any possible changes.

Most scholarship applications are digital and must be filled out on-line. Scholarships that have paper applications are in clearly labeled file folders on a table in the counselor’s classroom. Please help yourself, but always leave an original in the folder. I do not put them out until January.

Take a look at these NEW scholarship sites...
