84 Youth Serve Montana Scholarship Recipients
Youth Serve Montana Scholarship
Congratulations to the 84 recipients of a 2013 scholarship!
The Governor’s Office of Community Service, Montana Campus Compact, and Student Assistance Foundation are proud to award 84 Montana high school seniors from 59 schools a $1,000 Youth Serve Montana Scholarship. These scholarships recognize each student’s commitment to volunteering over 100 hours in the last year.
“These young volunteers are an asset to Montana,” said Governor Steve Bullock. “I am proud to recognize their efforts and I look forward to seeing how they continue to serve the state as they further their education at Montana’s colleges and universities.”
These $1,000 Youth Serve Montana Scholarships are for continued education at one of Montana Campus Compact’s two-year, four-year, public, tribal, private, or community colleges and universities.
“MSU and all of the Campus Compact institutions place a high value on service to community, and we are excited to grant these awards to our future leaders of Montana,” said Dr. Waded Cruzado, President, Montana State University and Board Member, Montana Campus Compact.
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 84 scholarship recipients contributed 14,396 volunteer hours to Montana. Students helped their communities by mentoring their younger peers, coaching sports teams, serving as classroom assistants, supporting Special Olympics, serving as summer camp counselors, helping with community emergency responses after disasters, organizing park clean-ups, participating in 4-H service events, and so much more.
The 2013 Youth Serve Montana Scholarships have been made possible through support from the Governor’s Office of Community Service, Montana Campus Compact, and Student Assistance Foundation.
