The DHC coordinates many competitions for prestigious national scholarships, along with several on-campus scholarships.  For more information on these prestigious awards, visit the Director of External Scholarships and Advising in the DHC, and check out the DHC website.  For a school of our size, the University of Montana-Missoula has received more than our share of these awards.  We have received more Udall Scholarships than any other institution in the country. UM students have received Marshall, Jack Kent Cooke, Truman, Goldwater,  and Rhodes scholarships, as well as Glamour's Top 10 College Women award.
All of these national scholarships require months, if not years, of planning and preparation for a successful application.  If you are potentially interested in applying for one of these scholarships, please consult with the Director of External Scholarships and Advising well in advance of the deadline printed below.  It is never too early to begin the conversation; outstanding freshmen and sophomores are warmly encouraged to visit the Director and get started on the planning process.
