Montana Tech's CodeMontana Scholarship for 2021

Twenty $4000 scholarships to study computer science and/or software engineering at Montana Tech will be awarded to students completing the first seven modules in the CodeHS online curriculum. Montana high school students can access the curriculum for free by joining the CodeMontana Program. High school students outside of Montana are eligible for the scholarship, but need to join CodeHS as an individual (use course code 36B9D) if their high school is not using the CodeHS curriculum. If a student is taking an Advanced Placement(AP) Computer Science course in their high school and scores a 4 or 5 on the AP Computer Science exam, we will accept that as a substitute for completing the CodeMontana curriculum.

  • Complete the first six modules of the python-based CS course (Welcome, Intro to Programming with Turtle Graphics, Basic Python and Console Interaction, Control Flow, Strings, and Data Structures). Note an AP Computer Science score of 4 or 5 will also qualify a student for the scholarship.
  • Be admitted to Montana Tech as a first time freshman in computer science or software engineering.
  • Have an ACT Math score of 24 or higher (SAT Math score of 590 or higher).

  • The successful awardee will receive a $1000 scholarship each semester for the first four regular academic semesters as long as the recipient continues to make progress in the computer science or software engineering curriculum and maintains a B average.
  • A total of twenty scholarships will be awarded, beginning on March 1, 2021 and will need to be accepted within 30 days. Scholarships will then be awarded on the first of the month (April 1st, May 1st, June 1st, and July 1st). Students should apply to Montana Tech at least 1 week prior to the award dates in order to be admitted and fully considered for the scholarship.
  • If scholarships still remain, the final scholarships will be awarded August 1st.
  • Montana Tech offers many additional scholarship opportunities, including WUE and Advantage scholarships that can save out-of-state students up to $8850 per year.
