Each year, the Staff Senate awards multiple scholarships for selected children of staff at The University Montana - Missoula. Applicants must be enrolled at UM - either the Mountain Campus, the Bitterroot College, or the Missoula College - as a full-time student (at least 12 credits) in the upcoming academic school year.
These scholarships are open to incoming freshmen, continuing education students, graduate students, and transfer students. Previous recipients are eligible to apply. Awards are based on academic records, letters of recommendation, campus and community involvement, and financial need.
To be considered for a scholarship, the applicant must complete and submit the Staff Senate Scholarship Application along with a one-page biographical statement, two letters of recommendation, and official transcripts. The Staff Senate Scholarship application process for the 2013-2014 school year is open. For questions regarding the Scholarship program, please contact the Staff Senate office (406) 243-5422 or Sandi Nelson, Staff Senate Scholarship Committee Chair.
The Staff Senate conducts fundraisers to support the scholarships, but also relies on donations from the campus community. This is an opportunity for anyone to give in order to benefit fellow UM employees and their families. Your contribution - even $5.00 - would benefit a deserving student.
You can contribute in any of the following ways:
Thank you for your generosity!
Congratulations to the 2012 Staff Senate Scholarship winners!
