The Montana Access Scholarship
Every gift counts twice!
The 66th Montana Legislature approved $2 million in need-based student aid that, when matched one-to-one by private donations, will provide a total of $4 million in financial aid for students in the Montana University System for the next two years.
This year Northern has to raise $30,000 for Montana Access Scholarships which will be matched by the state. That means, for every thousand dollars we raise from supporters like you, we can provide two students with $1000 scholarships each.
When we reach our goal, we will provide 60 students with $1000 scholarships!
80% of our students here at Northern receive some form of financial aid. These scholarships will be based on need as determined by the Expected Family Contribution (EFC), an index number that is calculated according to a formula established by law and the information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). They will be awarded to new or current full-time, undergraduate students who are Montana residents. You can help us lessen the financial barrier for a student by donating today!
