Supporting Montana's Students

Making Big Dreams Happen

We hope you're dreaming big and we hope those dreams include great things for Montana. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Montana Community Foundation awarded nearly $500,000 in scholarships 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 19. Scholarship awards generally range between $500 and $5,000, some of which are renewable for multiple years.
