In an effort to increase the number of STEM degree recipients participating in Montana’s workforce, the state of Montana now offers $1,000 scholarships to Montana high school students majoring in science, technology, engineering, math or health care.

The STEM Scholarship Program provides an incentive for Montana high school students to prepare for, enter into and complete degrees in postsecondary fields related to STEM and health care. The Montana Legislature set aside $400,000 for the scholarship program this year.

The deadline to apply is July 15.
