2012 Youth Serve Montana Scholarships
Recognizing Montana High School Students for Volunteering
The Governor’s Office of Community Service and Montana Campus Compact awarded 70 Montana high school seniors with a $1,000 Youth Serve Montana Scholarship to further their education in Montana. These scholarships are in recognition of students who have volunteered more than 100 hours in the last year.
“These young leaders have shown a commitment to Montana through their service,” said Governor Brian Schweitzer. “We are happy to thank them by making it a little easier to pay for college.”

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants needed to volunteer at least 100 hours in the last year. Many students volunteered more than this and in total, the 70 scholarship recipients contributed 11,705 volunteer hours to Montana. Students helped their communities by mentoring youth, organizing recycling drives, coaching sports teams, cleaning up parks, helping at food pantries, volunteering in hospitals, participating in 4-H service events, supporting Special Olympics, volunteering at museums, assisting with Red Cross blood drives, and so much more.
These Youth Serve Montana Scholarships will be used for continued education at one of Montana Campus Compact’s twenty two-year, four-year, public, tribal, private, or community colleges and universities.
