Montana Community Foundation scholarship applications are now available

Montana Community Foundation staff have announced applications for academic scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year are now available for Montana students. Last year, MCF awarded more than $450,000 in scholarships to 146 worthy Montana students. These scholarships are made possible by the generous donors who have established scholarship funds at MCF.

Scholarship awards generally range between $500 and $5,000, some of which are renewable for multiple years. Qualifications vary widely, resulting in scholarship eligibility for a diverse range of students. Both traditional and nontraditional Montana students are encouraged to apply. Students can apply online with a submission deadline for most applications of March 16, 2018. 

“Scholarship season is one of our favorite times of the year,” said Mary Rutherford, MCF president and chief executive officer. “The success of Montana’s students is one of the key ways to ensuring our state’s future. Thanks to our generous donors, many deserving students across the state will be able to pursue their academic dreams in 2018.”
