New Scholarship Opportunity

The Presidential Scholarship

We are pleased to announce a new Presidential Scholarship for a Native American student who is a member of a federally recognized tribe and a Montana high school graduate with financial need.

There will be a slight preference for students interested in a career in medicine/healthcare, but this is not a requirement. The Presidential is Montana State University’ s most prestigious merit scholarship for incoming students, in recognition of academic excellence/potential, leadership, and a commitment to service.

The deadline is fast approaching: December 4th, 2020 at 3PM! Apply online today.


Note: students must be admitted to MSU before applying for the Presidential and that test scores are optional for this year’s competition.
