Giving Tuesday is a national day of philanthropy that is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The MSUB Foundation is participating in Giving Tuesday to boost donations to our Annual Drive For Excellence that supports student scholarships, faculty development, and programs. By making a donation, you are investing in the students and faculty at MSU Billings where we continue to provide a quality, affordable education to students from Billings, eastern Montana, and far beyond.
For many students at MSU Billings, scholarships can be the difference between pursuing a lifelong dream and being denied a life-changing education. 34% of students at MSU Billings are low income and 44% of those students are parents. Nearly 40% of students at MSU Billings are non-traditional and 30% overall are parents. Many work one or more jobs while attending school full time to make ends meet. Your contribution can make a tremendous difference to these students in obtaining their degree and pursuing a career. Please give today.
"I am extremely honored to be one of the recipients of the Abrahamson Family Endowed Scholarship. Thanks to your generosity, I am able to work toward a lifelong dream of a degree in nursing. This dream became a necessity when I unexpectedly became a single mom in 2015. I am blessed daily by my two children and proud to show them, by my studies, that hard work is worthwhile."
When I found out that I was the recipient of the John F. Winifred M. Griffith endowed scholarship, I was driven to tears. This scholarship allows me to focus on my academics and athletics without feeling the pressure and obligation to work multiple jobs, while additionally balancing my homework and training. I made the MSUB honor roll last semester, and I plan to do so the rest of my time here.
