Montana Scholarships

Montana is the 4th largest state in the nation. At the same time it's the 48th least populated state in the country. All this elbow room is one reason Montana is known as Big Sky Country. The sky is indeed big out here but so are the educational opportunities. 

About 25 colleges and universities grace the Montana landscape. These include the University of Montana, Montana State University, Carroll College, University of Great Falls and Rocky Mountain College. Academic awards from certificates to graduate degrees are available across a wide spectrum of educational and vocational choices. 

Scholarships are also available in a wide range of sizes and formats. Public state-issued grants and scholarships can be found for students who perform academically as well as for students who demonstrate acute financial need. Private scholarships in Montana are distributed for those studying specific subject matter and also for those who meet specific religious, racial or gender qualifications.

The links below contain all you need to know to make the most of college scholarships opportunities in Montana.
