Let us help you pay for college!

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.

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.)

  • Oredigger Merit Scholarships- 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.
  • Marie Moebus Presidential Scholarships are Montana Tech’s most prestigious and competitive awards. These scholarships are a combination of a tuition waiver and cash and are renewable for up to four years. Qualifying first-year students will find a link to apply and submit materials on their PURL page. More information may be found here.
  • Lance Scholars Program will provide the means to make a Montana Tech education possible for more Montana students. More information may be found here.

Continuing Students
