The Montana University System (MUS) provides students and parents easy access to critical information about enrolling and succeeding in the Montana University System. Information includes preparing for college, financial aid, transfer of credits, and distance learning. Below are some financial aid resources available to Montana students:
MUS Honor Scholarship is a 4-year renewable scholarship, which waives the recipient's tuition when used at an eligible campus.
2 Plus 2 Honor Scholarship is awarded annually to students who graduate with an associate degree from a 2-year campus of the Montana University System or a Montana Community College.
Colleges provide institutional grants and scholarships to help make up the difference between college costs and what a family can be expected to contribute through income, savings, loans, and student earnings. Awards may be based on academic merit, artistic or athletic talent, financial need, or other factors. You can learn more about the types of institutional grants and scholarships awarded by checking each college's financial aid website.
Private scholarships provide funding for students who meet the requirements specified by the donor organization. Local organizations or businesses may offer scholarships to students who plan to study at a regional college or plan to pursue a degree in a particular field of study.
Check with your High School Guidance Counselor office for details about local and regional scholarships.
