Staff Senate and Professional Council are excited to offer scholarship funds to Montana State University Bozeman staff members and their dependent relatives. A dependent relative is defined as a child or qualifying relative; stepchild, brother, sister, or parent as defined by IRS Publication 4491 VITA/TCE Training Guide.  Staff employees working and living at non-Bozeman locations and their dependents may attend any MUS University or College. 

The scholarship is open to MSU Bozeman staff employees, continuing education students, transfer students, graduate students, and incoming freshman. Awards typically range between $250 and $1,000 and may be used for tuition, fees, and books. Tuition Waiver or Dependent Tuition Waiver candidates may apply. Previous recipients are eligible to apply.

Awards are based on academic records and information provided in a one-page biographical statement which includes community and/or campus involvement, educational background, plans for completing college, goals, how and where you will use your education to give back to your community. MSU’s Office of Financial Aid Services will provide oversight on academic transcripts. Applicants not using financial aid for other scholarship programs including Tuition Waivers, FAFSA, etc. will need to attach a transcript.
