Scholarships & Financial Aid

At the University of Montana, we understand that receiving support to finance an undergraduate degree can mean the difference between attending or not attending an institution. That is why we work to present students with competitive financial aid packages. In addition to a robust financial aid program, UM offers a number of annual scholarships to help make your education more affordable.

Each year, the School of Journalism gives about $175,000 in scholarships and awards to current students in the program. The bulk of those scholarship recipients are chosen by their professors to honor the outstanding work they've produced while in the classroom. When you become a student here, you will be eligible for a variety of annual awards. 

We have an online system of awarding scholarships -- the UM Scholarship Portal. Visit this link and fill out the general scholarship application.

The University of Montana offers a great value for the tuition dollars you’ll spend. When you compare the price tag with other universities, we think you'll like what you see.
