Montana History Conference Scholarships

The Montana Historical Society is putting together an amazing program for the 42nd Annual Montana History Conference, to be held in Bozeman, September 24-26, 2015, and the educator’s workshop is shaping up well, too. Renewal units will be available for both the Thursday educator workshop and all conference sessions. (Find the program and registration information here.) We hope you’ll consider attending!

As past years, we will be offering travel scholarships for both teachers and students.

About the scholarships: Funded by the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, the scholarships will consist of full conference registration plus a $275 travel/expense reimbursement. All teachers and students in Montana’s high schools, colleges, and universities are eligible to apply (residents of Bozeman and the immediate vicinity are eligible for the conference registration scholarship but not the travel reimbursement).

Teacher recipients must attend the entire conference, including Thursday’s Educators Workshop and a Saturday tour. Student recipients must commit to attending all day Friday and Saturday, including a Saturday tour.
Preference will be given to
  • Teachers and students from Montana’s tribal colleges;
  • Teachers and students from Montana’s on-reservation high schools;
  • Teachers and students from Montana’s community colleges and four-year universities;
  • Teachers and students from Montana’s small, rural, under-served communities.

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. September 9, 2015.  Awards will be announced the following week.

Applying for a scholarship is quick and easy. Apply online.
