Swan Valley Connections General Scholarships

We maintain a scholarship fund for students from any university who would otherwise be unable to attend one of our academic-credit field programs. Scholarships from our general fund are based on a combination of financial need and academic merit and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

This scholarship is reserved for students who currently have in-state tuition status at any Montana University and would otherwise be unable to attend one of our academic-credit field programs. This scholarship is based on a combination of financial need and academic merit and is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Agnes Beck lived with her husband Ed in the original homestead-era cabin on the Beck Homestead.  She was without a doubt one of the most generous people in the world. You never left her cabin without something she had thoughtfully given to you.

This scholarship fund was developed after her death in 2005, and has helped many students have the opportunity to attend a Swan Valley Connections education program.
