In April 2019, the 66th Montana Legislature approved $2 million in need-based student aid that, when matched by private donations, will provide a total of $4 million in financial aid for students studying throughout the Montana University System during the next two years. 

Private gifts matched dollar-for-dollar by the state through the Montana Access Scholarship Fund — are required to claim this critical scholarship funding for the University of Montana. More than 1,000 UM students could benefit from more than $1 million in need-based financial support, provided that the UM Foundation receives a total of $529,000 in gifts for the initiative.

Across the state, deserving Montana-resident students with limited resources need our helping hands to pursue their dream of a college education. The University of Montana will empower these students to succeed. Your scholarship gift will extend twice as far for these Montana students under this match program. For detailed information, visit
