HELENA — The Governor’s Office of Community Service, Reach Higher Montana, and Montana Campus Compact are pleased to announce applications are now being accepted for the 2023 Youth Serve Montana Scholarship. This year’s scholarship is being offered in two awards, $1,000 for 50 hours of service and $1,500 for 100 hours of service. The scholarships will be offered to 100 Montana seniors attending Montana Campus Compact member institutions next fall.
“We’re incredibly excited that with the support of both Reach Higher Montana’s and Campus Compact’s boards we are able to offer increased scholarships and two tiers of scholarship this year,” said Josh Vanek, Director of Montana Campus Compact. “Young Montanans care deeply about their communities and the Youth Serve Montana Scholarship honors the amazing work by young people to improve community life in our state.”
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, a state agency tasked with expanding and promoting community volunteerism in Montana. The Governor’s Office of Community Service administers the scholarship funds.
“Volunteer service inspires real life learning and connects young adults to communities across Montana. Reach Higher Montana is pleased to continue support for these scholarships,” said Kelly Cresswell, Executive Director of Reach Higher Montana.
