Scholarship Directory

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

All scholarship applications are due March 31, 2024. Applications needing FAFSA data can be submitted without the information, allowing for flexibility during the FAFSA process transition. However, applicants must provide missing FAFSA data to the MCF as soon as possible once they receive the information.

Following a 'soft launch' by the Department of Education on December 31st, the 2024-2025 FASFA Form is now open at www.fafsa.gov. The application may be periodically unavailable for maintenance, and a brief ‘waiting room’ at the login is possible.

If you would like to learn about the scholarships offered through MCF, you can search for scholarships by location and education level below. Apply by clicking "Take the Eligibility Quiz" or "Apply" button. The eligibility quiz will ensure you meet the minimum requirements for the scholarships and help you determine which scholarship opportunity you should apply for.

  • Log into your account or create an account on the Montana Community Foundation Online Scholarship Application portal.
  • Start the eligibility quiz to find out what scholarships you are eligible for.
  • Once you have completed the eligibility quiz, you will be able to apply for the scholarships you qualify for.

Students might be experiencing delays, as anticipated, in receiving their FAFSA Submission Summary (FSS), which contains the Student Aid Index (SAI) - the key data points MCF needs for assessment. At this point, we are encouraging patience and ensuring students that MCF will work with them.
