The Allen Yarnell Center for Student Success and Access Success programs are enormously proud of our graduates and their accomplishments. We recognize their excellence in academic, personal, and professional skill-building endeavors as Montana’s Own Scholars at Montana State University. These scholars represent the best of Montana. They have benefited greatly from the generosity of Terry and Pat Payne who founded Montana’s Own Scholarship Program to support higher education and invest in the lives of Montanans.
