University-wide Scholarships

Montana State University awards millions of dollars in scholarships and waiver awards to new students who enter in the fall of each year. You might qualify for some of this money based on your academic record, financial need, group affiliation or a combination of the three. For university-wide scholarship information, visit the MSU Financial Aid website.

College of Letters & Science Scholarships

To apply for a scholarship from the College of Letters & Science for Fall 2016/Spring 2017, online application forms will be available starting in October 2015. Please check back then.
