Student Opportunity Grant Program

The Student Opportunity Grant Program supports unique opportunities that enhance your education at Montana State University.


Mary Edsall McLaughlin Award

The Mary Edsal McLaughlin Award offers students and faculty an opportunity to follow their imagination through research and travel, to experience something fresh and different, something that inspires creativity. The goal—and the challenge—of this grant is to give recipients great latitude in determining the processes, goals and outcomes of the support. Past grants have prioritized travel and exploration; curiosity and innovation, as they apply to materials, works and performances; and activities that embrace calculated and productive risk-taking.  The area of focus is up to YOU. There are no restrictions in what YOU want to see, research or experience. The award may cover travel, admission to museums, room and board.
