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 Treacy Foundation gives scholarships to starting freshman and sophomore college students who are residents of Montana, Idaho and North Dakota. The scholarships are $2,000.00 per year and are renewable for 4 years provided the student requests renewal each year.
We do not offer scholarships to junior, senior or graduate college students.
The application deadline is May 1st. The applications are then reviewed by the Scholarship Selection Committee. The applicant will then be notified of his/her selection or non-selection.
Once a student has been selected for a Treacy Foundation scholarship, that student
will receive preference for renewal each year provided they write the Treacy Foundation requesting renewal by the May 1st deadline. We do provide preference to students requesting renewal of their scholarships, so we are limited on the number of new scholarships granted each year.
