Making the Dream of Education a Reality with Scholarships at Montana Technological University
Financial ability should not be a deciding factor in whether or not a student can pursue their educational dream at Montana Tech.
Each year over $1,500,000 in scholarships are awarded to Montana Tech students and everyday we strive to offer more. We are a community of determined doers and innovators and together we can provide additional means to recruit more Orediggers and to allow more students the transformative experience that is a Montana Technological University Education.
Please consider making a gift to any or all of the scholarships below during DayOne.
Canadian Recruitment Scholarship Endowment
