Digger Athletics
Supporting Our Oredigger Student Athletes

Montana Tech is committed to recruiting and developing student athletes who will perform successfully in the classroom and compete at a championship level. Increasing the funds for annual scholarships is a crucial component to make this a reality.


Your contribution to the Digger Athletics Annual Scholarship provides immediate resources that will benefit student athletes and help Digger Athletics move closer to the NAIA maximum scholarship limits. Currently, depending on sport, Montana Tech operates between only 50 to 70 percent of that limit.


During DayOne we have a unique matching opportunity. For every dollar donated to the Digger Athletics Annual Scholarship Jerry '77 and Julie Schuyler have generously offered up $10,000 of their $100,000 commitment to the Digger Athletic Endowed Scholarship, as a special match. That means for every dollar you give, you'll double the benefit to our athletes. We are very grateful to the Schuyler's for their longtime and continued support to Digger Athletics and Montana Tech.


Montana Tech student athletes are truly students first, having won 275 Academic All Conference Honors in the last seven years. By raising money for the Digger Athletics Annual Scholarship it allows us to win the recruiting race on the local, regional, and national level as well as in our classrooms.


Consider giving today and make an impact for Montana Tech Athletes. Please help us spread the word! Share this project on social media, by email and tell your friends!
