 Apply for Scholarships


Eligibility for need-based scholarships is determined by the MSU Office of Financial Aid. Students who wish to be considered for need-based scholarships must complete the FAFSA student aid application. Priority deadline at Montana State University to file a FAFSA is December 1.  Many of our scholarships are based on financial need, so it's always a good idea to have a FAFSA on file with the Office of Financial Aid, even if you think you won't qualify for financial aid.

The scholarship application process for 2021-2022 will open on November 1, 2020. 

Cat $cholarships is the MSU online scholarship platform that will be used for collecting scholarship applications. The priority deadline for applications is Feb. 1, 2021.

Only accepted MSU students will be able to use Cat $cholarships online applications.
