Montana 10 is an exciting new opportunity for fall 2022 freshman at MSU Billings. Starting college should be exciting, but let’s admit, it can also be intimidating!

Eligible students will receive financial assistance to cover tuition and mandatory fees from the first semester through graduation. In addition to paying $0 for tuition and mandatory fees, MT 10 Scholars will receive $500 yearly for book and course materials and $50 a month during the academic year for personal college expenses! MT 10 Scholars will be part of a special group of University Campus and City College students who will be guided from enrollment through graduation and the launching of a career by their very own MT 10 Success Coach!
