Additional Information: The Montana Higher Education Grant (MHEG) is the original state appropriated need based grant program in Montana. Along with the State Work Study program, MHEG first received funding during the 1975-1976 academic year under its original name, the Montana State Student Incentive Grant. Funds are awarded to Montana resident students who demonstrate exceptional financial need as determined by the FAFSA. During recent award years, over $600,000 was awarded to more than 1,000 students. Early FAFSA filing is encouraged, as funding for the MHEG program is limited.

Award Amount: Award amounts may vary. In previous years, award amounts averaged at approximately $600 annually. Recipients may re-apply each year by completing the FAFSA.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $631.
