Students who become Montana 10 Scholars will be part of a special group of students leading the way in a new way of doing college—a kind of college where students have the financial support they need, the community and guidance that knows them and supports them as individuals, and the specialized academic support that will help them achieve their education goals and launch their careers.

Montana 10 is a part of a study being conducted by the Montana University System that looks into the role that these types of services and financial supports play in students' college experience and outcomes. The study will track the progress of around 300 Montana 10 Scholars and compare aspects of their college experience to a similar number of students receiving traditional campus services. Around half of the students who apply will be chosen to participate. Participation will be determined through a random selection.
