Youth Serve Montana Scholarships
Congratulations to the 98 recipients of a 2015 scholarship!
The Governor’s Office of Community Service, Montana Campus Compact, and Student Assistance Foundation are proud to award 98 Montana high school seniors from 71 schools from Eureka to Wibaux a $1,000 Youth Serve Montana Scholarship. These scholarships recognize each student’s commitment to volunteering over 100 hours in the last year.
The Youth Serve Montana Scholarship was created to promote volunteerism among high school students, encourage young leaders to further their learning, and provide tuition assistance for Montana students who wish to attend college in-state. Selected students receive a $1,000 scholarship toward their college tuition. Scholarship funds have been made available through support from Montana Campus Compact, a network of Montana campuses committed to community service; Student Assistance Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping students pursue and fund post secondary education; and the Governor’s Office of Community Service, a state agency tasked with expanding and promoting service in Montana. The Governor’s Office of Community Service administers the scholarships.
