Browsing our website, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that we love overachievers. It’s true. We award approximately $1-million to each incoming class of first-time undergraduate Orediggers. A big portion of those dollars are merit-based, recognizing your academic achievements, particularly the overachievements. See Information for New Students below for more details.

The university also supports a robust scholarship program for continuing students. These are typically based on credits earned at Montana Tech and cumulative GPA. Some awards also consider major or other specific criteria set by the donor.

New First-Time Students

You are considered a new first-time student if you’ve never taken courses from Montana Tech or another college. (If you were enrolled in dual credit courses, you are still considered a new student.)

New first-time students are awarded Oredigger Merit Scholarships based on GPA and test scores. No scholarship application is necessary. Award announcement letters are mailed in the fall upon acceptance. New students should also watch their PURL and email for additional scholarship opportunities, paying special attention to any required application materials and deadlines. Also see information about Marie Moebus Presidential Scholarship outlined above.

Continuing Students

You are a continuing student if you are currently enrolled at Montana Tech pursuing an undergraduate degree (bachelor's or associate's) or certificate. Continuing students should complete the Continuing Student Scholarship Application to be considered for scholarships in the 2022-2023 academic year. The deadline for submission is 11:59 PM Mountain Time on February 21, 2022.

Transfer Students

If you have attended another college (other than dual credit), you are considered a transfer student. New transfer students are evaluated for scholarships on an ongoing basis after admission. Awards are determined by GPA and other specific criteria such as major. Transfer applicants will be notified directly of any scholarship awards and no application is necessary.

Graduate Students

Graduate Students should complete the Graduate Student Scholarship Application for the 2022-2023 academic year.
