Montana Western is grateful to have the opportunity to deliver extra financial support to qualifying students during the COVID-19 pandemic. The federal government recently passed the CARES Act, which allocates emergency relief funding for eligible college students to address pressing needs due to the disruption of campus operations.

If you are a Montana Western student eligible for financial aid and your financial situation was negatively impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can apply to receive a lump sum of up to $800. The funding is limited and will be awarded based on the level of student need.

Eligibility Requirements Per Federal Regulations:
