Students in the news

University of Montana Presidential Leadership Scholarships have been awarded to 23 exceptional incoming UM freshmen. The scholarships recognize outstanding talent, academic performance, leadership and contribution to the community. In the list of 2017 Presidential Leadership Scholars is Kayla Irish, who graduated at the top of her class at Fergus High School with a 4.0 GP.

This year’s scholarship winners were chosen from a field of more than 350 qualified applicants. Scholarship recipients enroll in UM’s Davidson Honors College and receive a fouryear tuition waiver, plus an additional $5,000 to $7,500 per year. 

“We have worked with a wide range of campus partners to recruit a wonderfully talented group of students for this prestigious scholarship program,” said Brock Tessman, dean of the Davidson Honors College. “As has been the case with the Presidential Leadership Scholars who have come before them, these students will contribute to the entire campus through their aspiration to academic excellence and their engagement in leadership and service. We look forward to tremendous accomplishments from them.”
