September 26, 2019 - September 28, 2019

Of special interest to: Educators and students who want to attend the Montana History Conference, Sept. 26-28

Applying for registration and travel scholarships 

Save the Date! The Montana Historical Society is putting together an amazing program for the 46th Annual Montana History Conference, “Keeping Up with the Past!” The conference will be held in Helena, September 26-28. Renewal units will be available for both the Thursday educator workshop and all conference sessions. We hope you’ll consider attending!

As in past years, we will be offering travel scholarships for both teachers and students.

About the scholarships: Funded by the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, the scholarships will consist of full conference registration plus a $275 travel/expense reimbursement. All teachers and students in Montana’s high schools, colleges, and universities are eligible to apply (residents of Helena and the vicinity are eligible for the conference registration scholarship but not the travel reimbursement).

Teacher recipients must attend the entire conference, including Thursday’s Educators Workshop and the Saturday sessions. Student recipients must commit to attending all day Friday and Saturday, including a Saturday tour.

Preference will be given to

  • Teachers and students from Montana’s tribal colleges;
  • Teachers and students from Montana’s on-reservation high schools;
  • Teachers and students from Montana’s community colleges and four-year universities;
  • Teachers and students from Montana’s small, rural, under-served communities.

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. September 8, 2019.  Awards will be announced the following week.

Applying for a scholarship is quick and easy. Apply online.

P.S. Please don’t forget to take our short online survey. Help us improve our offerings and maybe be a winner (prizes to the fifteenth, thirty-first, forty-second person to complete this survey.)
