I have been keeping busy this week on the Central Montana Fair Tour. This is my first time working Montana Fairs and it is fantastic! There has been a ton of interest in Montana State and still many more fairs to come. Check out the Montana Fair schedule to see when the fair will be in your area!
MSU offers fantastic scholarship opportunities to Montana students. The Montana Freshman Premier Scholarship, the Presidential Scholarship and various departmental awards. This is the time to start looking into various scholarships to be sure deadlines are met and funds are still available. I have been encouraging students to apply for admission and submit scholarship applications by Thanksgiving, if not earlier. The deadline for the Presidential Scholarship is January 5, 2010.
MSU Fridays are another great way to explore all MSU has to offer! There are three MSU Fridays offered each academic year. The dates for this academic year are October 16, 2009, January 29, 2010 and March 12, 2010. Basically, prospective students take a Friday off of school and spend the entire day in Bozeman on the MSU campus. Prospective students, family members and friends will have the opportunity to take campus tours, residence hall tours, sit in on sample classes, meet with various academic departments and much more. The program is totally free! Do not hesitate register today!
