MTCC's George Dennison Civic Engagement Scholarship honors the contributions college students make to community life in Montana and beyond. The $1000 scholarships recognize undergraduate students who have made a significant community-based service effort while pursuing a degree or certificate.

MTCC selects six current undergraduate students who are attending an MTCC affiliate campus. The $1000 scholarships are awarded in these categories (two scholarships per category): tribal and community colleges; 4-year colleges; flagship universities (UM and MSU). The scholarships are a combination of a $500 waiver from the scholarship recipient's college/university, matched by a $500 MTCC check sent to the scholarship recipient's financial aid office.

Newman Civic Fellowship

This year, the Office of Student Engagement is facilitating the nomination and application process for the NewmanCivic Fellowship. The NewmanCivic Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who have demonstrated an investment in finding solutions for challenges facing communities throughout the country. Each year, President Cruzado has the opportunity to nominate one student leader for the Campus Compact's NewmanCivic Fellows Award, which recognizes community-involved student leaders who:

  • Engage in collaborative action with others from campus or from surrounding communities in order to create long-term social change.
  • Take action in addressing issues of inequality and political polarization.
  • Demonstrate the motivation and potential for effective long-term civic engagement.

The fellowship provides training and resources that nurture students’ assets and passions to help them develop strategies to achieve social change. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides learning opportunities focused on the skills fellows need in order to serve as effective agents of change in addressing public problems and building equitable communities.

For more information on Campus Compact and the NewmanCivic Fellowship, please visit their website.

To nominate a student, please complete the nomination form. The deadline for nominations is December 12th at Noon.
