Cara and Larry Simkins Scholarship

The Fund shall provide scholarships for students at The University of Montana who are graduates of a Montana high school. Scholarships will be awarded based on the recipients’ Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC must be between 20% and 75% of the federal definition for the cost of attendance at The University of Montana, as determined by the Financial Aid Office. Awards shall be for the recipients’ sophomore year and recipients’ need to meet or exceed the Financial Aid required GPA (currently a 3.2). Recipients will be renewed for two additional years, as long as the recipient submits the Financial Aid Renewal Scholarship Application and meets the minimum GPA to be renewed. The donors’ preference is that students with a GPA lower than a 3.0 would still be renewed. If a recipient becomes ineligible, he/she will remain ineligible for both the second and third years.
