Montana Technological University students received scholarships as part of the Montana State Fund’s (MSF’s) Growing a Safer Montana Scholarship Program. Fifteen students representing Occupational Safety & Health or industry trade programs were awarded $4,000 scholarships at a virtual award ceremony.
