The principal focus is to help young women who are not on a four-year college track, but who are seeking vocational or business training to be self-sufficient. The scholarship is intended for a young woman who has struggled with financial difficulties, whose family has not been able to provide much support, but one who has demonstrated a willingness to work to help herself. She is not expected to be among the top students but one who has made a real effort to completing school with at least a "C" average. One who demonstrates a genuine desire to obtain a post-secondary education or training to become self-sufficient.
This scholarship is funded through the Montana Community Foundation and administered by Chapter X P.E.O. in Butte, Montana.
