Applications Available for Jeff Jurgens Memorial Scholarships
March 31, 2021
The Scottie Booster Club is currently accepting applications for 2021 Jeff Jurgens Memorial Scholarships. The annual scholarships are awarded to Valley County's graduating seniors who played basketball in high school or who plan to pursue a degree in a medical or health-related field. Other considerations for scholarship awards are community service, academic achievement, and financial need.
Deadline for 2021 applications is May 10. Applications are available from guidance counselors in Glasgow, Hinsdale, Nashua, Frazer, Lustre, and Opheim schools. Prospective applicants can also request an application directly from Andrew McKean by emailing [email protected] or calling 406-263-5442.
The Jeff Jurgens Memorial Scholarships are funded by proceeds from the annual Jeff Jurgens Memorial Basketball Tournament, the booster club's largest fundraiser. The 21st JJMT was held last weekend in Glasgow, and hosted over 60 youth basketball teams from as far away as Billings.
Besides awarding JJMT Scholarships, the Scottie Booster Club helps purchase team uniforms, equipment, and otherwise supports Glasgow School District athletics and extracurricular activities. For information about becoming a Booster Club member, contact president Mike Pehlke at 406-263-9899.
