The state of Montana is offering new $1,000 scholarships through its new STEM Scholarship Program to in-state high school graduates who major in science, technology, engineering, math or health care at a Montana college.
The deadline to apply is July 15.
The program is designed to provide an incentive for Montana high school students to prepare for, enter into, and complete degrees in postsecondary fields related to science, technology, engineering, mathematics and healthcare, according to officials with the Montana University System. The goal of the program is to increase the number of STEM degree recipients participating in Montana’s workforce.
The Montana Legislature set aside $400,000 for the scholarship program this year.
