Through the efforts of the Montana State University Billings Foundation and the generosity of private donors, MSU Billings disburses approximately $1.7 million in scholarships each academic year. All MSU Billings degree-seeking students are encouraged to complete the scholarship application.

Before you start:


MAKE SURE YOU HAVE LISTED AN EMAIL ADDRESS WITH MSU BILLINGS IN ORDER FOR YOUR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION TO BE CONSIDERED! If you do not list an email address on your admission application or in your MyInfo account, we cannot guarantee your application will be matched with scholarship awards.

Deadlines:

  • November 1 — The General Scholarship application opens.

  • December 1 — Incoming freshman student scholarships will be awarded on an on-going basis.

  • December 1 — Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) priority deadline. In order to qualify for need-based scholarships you will need to complete the FAFSA for the upcoming academic year.

  • January 15 — The deadline for the Chancellor’s Excellence Award application.

  • February 1 — The priority deadline for most scholarships.

Apply for scholarships now. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Click the yellow “Sign In” button (upper right) to access the system with your MSU Billings NetID and password.

  2. Complete the General Application questions presented. The system may recommend additional scholarships opportunities available to you. Answer those questions, too.

  3. After you complete the General Application, you’re done! If you are awarded a scholarship you will receive an award notification to your primary email address. You can also make edits or check on the status of your application by logging back into the system at any time.

For more information on how to use this system, please contact MSU Billings Scholarship Administration at scholarships@msubillings.edu or 406-657-2244, extension 2339.

Reminder! Your General Application from the previous academic year will be archived and removed from the system in September. You must complete a new General Application each fall semester.
