Legacy Scholarships

The College of Engineering (COE) is pleased to announce the Legacy Scholarship Program, designed to enable talented children of Montana State University-Bozeman graduates who have earned a degree in any curriculum, to study engineering or computer science at MSU-Bozeman.

To be eligible for a Legacy Scholarship, entering freshmen/continuing students must meet the following criteria:

  1. be the son/daughter of a Montana State University-Bozeman graduate (from any curriculum)
  2. be enrolled in one of the curricula in the College of Engineering
  3. must have a minimum high school GPA of 3.5, and maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA throughout their COE academic career in order to retain this scholarship

The Legacy Scholarship is awarded competitively based upon total academic achievement. Financial need may be used as a selection criterion as well.

Awards vary from one-time scholarships given for a single academic year to multi-year scholarships of $3,000 per year for up to 4 years (as long as students continue to meet scholarship criteria) or $12,000 total.

The COE Legacy Scholarship awards are made possible, in part, by a large gift to the COE scholarship endowment from the estate of William V. Benjamin.


How to Apply for a Legacy Scholarship

The scholarships page has the appropriate online scholarship application for your circumstances, whether you are a continuing, incoming freshman, or transfer student.
