Dr. Maurice Hilleman’s life was dedicated to “consequential work” and through his
remarkable efforts, it is estimated that nearly 1 billion people are alive today through
his contributions to vaccine science and global health.
The MSU Hilleman Scholars Program is a leadership program designed just for Montana
residents who demonstrate significant academic, leadership, and career potential.
As Montana’s land grant institution, we know these three qualities are essential to
advancing the future of our state and our citizens. Our mission is to build on this
potential, and by association the future of Montana, with important financial and
academic support alongside unique leadership and career development opportunities.
