College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Excellence Award Scholarship
With its inherent diversity, the College of Arts and Sciences serves as an intellectual and cultural resource for all students, faculty, and staff of Montana State University Billings, and for the larger community and region which it serves. The College of Arts and Sciences offers academic programs leading to Associate, Baccalaureate and Master’s degrees in the liberal arts and sciences and is the primary provider of General Education courses at MSU Billings. The liberal arts and sciences are the core of a complete education, stimulating spirit, deepening understanding, and broadening horizons. They cultivate clear and imaginative thinking, effective communication, critical evaluation of ideas, and effective adaptation of knowledge. The student who experiences the liberal arts and sciences becomes informed, inquiring, critical, and concerned, while building strong foundations for future career opportunities. The liberal arts and sciences provide the solid foundation essential for careers in many areas. In 1989, the College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Excellence Scholarship fund was established through gifts received from faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the University. The scholarship provides financial assistance to students majoring in the arts and sciences.
