“Reach Higher Montana is always glad to work with our partners to increase scholarship resources for Montana students,” said Kelly Cresswell, executive director of Reach Higher Montana. “We are grateful for the hundreds of service hours Montana students completed to improve their communities.”
The Youth Serve Montana Scholarship was created to promote volunteerism among high school students. Funds are available through support from Montana Campus Compact, a network of Montana campuses committed to community service; Reach Higher Montana, a nonprofit dedicated to helping students pursue and fund post-secondary education; and the Governor’s Office of Community Service, the state agency tasked with expanding and promoting community service in Montana. The Governor’s Office of Community Service administers the scholarship funds.
“On behalf of Montana Campus Compact’s CEOs, we’re excited and heartened to welcome a new freshmen class to our institutions as they come in with demonstrated ethics of service by doing good work in their communities.” Said Josh Vanek, Director of Montana Campus Compact.
The Youth Serve Montana Scholarship is offered annually with the application opening each fall.
